This month, Manhattan Magazine shares the best spots and activities in the Hamptons. Number 5 on their to-do list is to stop by our Wainscott location to pick up “mouthwatering, hockey-puck-size cookies” for “hosts with a sweet tooth.”

Everyone knows that our cookies are the hottest treats in town, but now Levain is getting even cooler. That’s right friends- Levain Bakery will soon officially be air conditioned! Amazingly enough, we have been operating out of our Upper West Side location sans AC since 1995…that’s fifteen Manhattan summers, for the record!… and with those ovens constantly opening and closing to deliver the freshest and most delicious cookies in the world- well, let’s just say it hasn’t quite been sugar and spice and everything nice with temperatures upwards of 90 degrees. Even though we like to think of ourselves as tough cookies around here…you know what they say, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen!… I can safely tell you that we’re all nothing short of ecstatic to welcome the new addition to the bakery.
Installation’s going to take some time, but with any luck, we should be beating the heat by the time the solstice rolls around. Stop in soon, and you may even catch the staff doing a little happy dance as they pack away the fans and bid farewell to mountains of melting cookie dough. And don’t worry- even though it’ll be a bit cooler in here, those cookies are still going to be warm out of the oven!
So come and chill out with us all summer long…what could be sweeter?

New York chef and restaurateur Akhtar Nawab shared his favorite spots in his neighborhood in this week’s Time Out New York. He tells Daniel Gritzer that he frequents Levain Bakery with his daughter Ela: “She loves the cookies, but I usually get her brioche with cinnamon sugar or a blueberry muffin.” And he describes the Whole-Wheat Walnut Raisin roll as “really dense and tender.”
