I want to visit a bakery! Where are you located?

We’d love to have you! Please visit our locations page for a complete listing of our retail bakeries. 

Do you ever run out of cookies?

Never! Literally, never.
We bake cookies from open to close, every day. Whether your craving hits at 7:30 am on the Upper East Side or 10pm in Noho, we’ve got warm, just-baked cookies to hit the spot. Check the hours of each of our bakeries here.

Can I order in advance?

Advanced planning is the best kind of planning! If you’d like to place a pick-up order from one of our bakeries, please call the bakery directly (phone numbers here). We accept pick-up orders as far in advance as you’d like! Or, you can order online from Caviar up to 5 days in advance and skip the line when you pick up.

Do you offer local delivery?

Yes! We’ve partnered with Caviar and Doordash to offer deliveries from our bakeries in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the DC area. If you’re planning ahead, Caviar accepts orders up to 5 days in advance.

Courier deliveries to other NY boroughs may be available by special arrangement. Please contact us at or 1-877-4LEVAIN (877-453-8246) to discuss.

Do you accept Apple Pay/Google Pay/Android Pay?

All of these are available payment options at our retail bakeries. At this time, however, none of these are available through our online shop.

Do you make cakes or cupcakes?

While we don’t bake traditional layered cakes, our cookies are often used to create cookie towers for celebrations like weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and more. If you’re interested in exploring that option, fill out an inquiry form and let us know what you’re thinking by using the additional comments field. Please note that we can only supply the cookies and some inspiration! You’ll need to provide the tower itself and do some assembly.

Levain is amazing! Do you have any bakeries outside of New York?

Thanks for the compliment! We agree - it would be great to have a Levain Bakery in everyone’s neighborhood. We recently opened our first two bakeries outside of New York, in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington D.C and Bethesda, MD! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and sign up for our email list to be the first to know about our plans in other areas. In the meantime, we’re happy to ship cookies straight to your door! Shop cookies now.

Can I place a wholesale order?

At this time, we don’t offer any of our products to other retailers.

Can I open a franchise?

We’re thrilled you want to become part of the Levain family. At this time, we’re not franchising nationally or internationally.


We recently introduced Levain Bakery Frozen Cookies – the Levain Bakery cookies you’ve always loved, now in a smaller size and frozen for your eating convenience. Fully baked and ready to heat, these cookies are the same recipe as Levain's classic cookie, just smaller!


As of now, no, they’ll exclusively be sold in select grocery stores, but we never say never!


There's nothing like a giant, crispy-outside, ooey-gooey middle Levain Bakery Cookie. These are the same recipe, just in an everyday-indulgence friendly 2-ounce size!


We’ve launched our original Chocolate Chip Walnut, Two Chip Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, with more options waiting in the wings. Our Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip is exclusively available at Whole Foods (for now).


The cookies are available via select grocers. To view a list of stores that are carrying our frozen cookies, click here. In the meantime, if you'd like it in your local store, reach out to the retailer via social media, the retailer’s email or ask your store manager to bring it in.  


If you're interested in carrying Levain Bakery Frozen Cookies in your store, email

Please note: at this time, Levain Bakery does not distribution wholesale bakery cookies or dough to be baked and sold individually in-store. We are only marketing and distributing a frozen packaged product.


For any product questions or comments, please email and a team member will be in touch with you shortly.

How long will Levain Bakery Frozen cookies stay fresh if they've been out of the freezer?

Our frozen cookies are fully baked, then frozen to maintain the freshness and integrity of our ingredients. For the best taste, we don’t recommend leaving the frozen cookies at room temperature for more than 24 hours.
If the cookies have been at room temperature for less than 24 hours, remove the cookies from the packaging and tray, put them on a baking sheet, and heat the cookies according to the instructions on the box to enjoy.

I love Levain Cookies! Do you ship them?

Yes we do! We ship our cookie gift boxes anywhere in the United States --check out our flavors and shop now! 

I’m sending a gift - do you include prices in the box?

Not to worry, we never include pricing or similar details in our orders (shipped via UPS or delivered via Caviar and DoorDash).

I’m sending a gift but don’t want my name on the paperwork - can you help?

The best way to make sure your gift is “from” the right person is to enter that information as the billing name checkout. If you’re sending from your company, for example, you could enter “Jane’s Flower Shop” rather than Jane Doe in the name field. 

Can I customize the cookies in my gift box?

The best way to customize your cookie selection is to order the individual flavors you’d like as packs of four. For example, if you want 2 flavors you can add a Box of Four Chocolate Chip Walnut and a Box of Four Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip and.

We currently aren’t set up to specify what cookie flavors are included in the individual packs, but our tech team is hard at work to add this capability.

Can I order in advance?

Advanced planning is the best kind of planning! At checkout, you can enter the date that you would like your order to arrive, up to 25 days in advance. Please note that once a package is in UPS’ hands, we are unable to ensure it will not be waylaid by unforeseen events, such as weather. If your cookies absolutely must arrive by a specific date, we recommend scheduling them to arrive a day or two early; rest assured, they keep very well at room temperature for a few days or in a freezer for many weeks. 


The box and bracing trays inside are! Our new shipper is made from 50% recycled post-consumer waste material and is fully recyclable upon disposal. The interior pieces are compostable, and we removed the tissue paper and interior box to avoid additional waste. Unfortunately, the cellophane bags required to keep the cookies fresh are not recyclable, but we’re always on the lookout for new packaging options.

Help! There was a problem with my order.

We’re on the case! Reply to your order confirmation or email and let us know what’s going on. We will do our best to make it right.

Do you accept returns?

Given the perishable nature of our cookies, we aren’t able to accept returns. If you encountered an issue with your order, please email and let us know what’s going on. We will do our best to make it right.

Absolutely! We love sending cookie joy and are happy to help make your list and check it twice. For more information and to get started, fill out an inquiry form or email

Can I customize the packaging for large orders or party favors?

Great idea! We’re happy to work with you to customize a sticker, hang tag and/or ribbon color for your order. Minimum quantities will apply for any customization, and the price may be adjusted accordingly. For more information, and to get started, fill out an inquiry form and let us know what you have in mind using the additional comments field.

How far in advance do I need to place my order?

Since our team bakes and ships to order each day, we need some advanced notice to plan for large orders. We typically require 3-4 week’s notice for large orders and an additional week if your order includes customization. That said, we know that sometimes time isn’t on your side and are always happy to try and accommodate a shorter window. Send us an email at, and we’ll see what we can do! 

How do I place an order for local delivery or pick up?

Breads, pastries, and cookies can be ordered through Caviar or DoorDash and delivered daily in Manhattan and within 5 to 8 miles of our bakeries in Williamsburg, Wainscott, Georgetown, and Bethesda.

Please note: Be sure to include a valid contact phone number for the person receiving the delivery so the courier can contact them if there are any issues. Caviar adds additional charges for failed deliveries, courier re-attempts and courier telephone calls required to complete delivery. Customers are responsible for giving accurate and adequate delivery instructions and contact information. If the courier cannot make contact with the recipient, the order may be forfeited without refund.

What’s the difference between ordering local delivery through Caviar or DoorDash and from your online shop?

If you would like to order breads, pastries, or cookies from one of our bakeries for delivery in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Wainscott, or the DC area you can place an order here.

If you would like to send a cookie gift box anywhere in the US, check out our online shop. Gift box packaging and gift notes are available only through our online shop; cookies ordered from a retail location will be packed in one of our standard bakery boxes.

Please note that we’re not able to ship our breads and pastries by mail at this time.


We sell physical cards for use in our retail bakeries. To redeem a gift card in store, simply present it at the register.


We can absolutely convert an electronic gift card to a store gift card. Email and include the gift card number, and we’ll arrange for a store gift card you can pick up at your location of choice.


Right now, our t-shirts are available only to our bakery teams. Please check out our Merch page for other cool branded swag like enamel pins and tote bags.  Of course, if you absolutely must have a t-shirt (we get it), we’re always looking for delightful, talented people to join our team!


We’re always looking for fun, friendly people to join the Cookie Lovers' Parade. You can find a list of all of our open positions and submit an application on our Jobs page. If you just want to introduce yourself, we’d love to meet you! Please email with the store location you’d like to join, a recent copy of your resume, and a bit about yourself!
