The Seven Best Cookies in New York City

Nothing beats a warm cookie on a cold day. Whether you are a fan of chocolate chip cookies, black and white cookies or something more unusual, here are the seven best cookies in New York City. It is hard to eat only one cookie from any of these places!

Jacques Torres Chocolate – 350 Hudson St & Other Locations

Jacques Torres Chocolate still has the best chocolate chip cookies in New York City. They only use the best chocolate so their cookies are rich, decadent and delicious!

City Bakery – 3 W 18th St

You can also get another top notch chocolate chip cookie at the City Bakery in the Flatiron District. It is simply amazing and heaven in every bite which makes them hard to share.

Momofuku Milk Bar – 251 E 13th St & Other Locations

The compost cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar are super addictive. These cookies seemingly have a hodgepodge of ingredients including chocolate chips, pretzels, potato chips, coffee oats, graham crackers and butterscotch so it is a unique mix of salty and sweet that just works.

Schmackary’s – 362 W 45th St

We love Schmackary’s because they have so many flavors to choose from including some crazy ones that you can’t find anywhere else like funfetti, glazed pistachio and eggnog. They have a rotating selection of yummy cookies so you just never know what you may find here!

Levain Bakery – 167 West 74th St & Other Locations

Levain Bakery is renowned for their chocolate chip walnut cookie. Each cookie from here is just perfect. They have a nice crunchy outside and a nice ooey gooey texture inside. The walnuts just put it over the top.

Glaser’s Bake Shop – 1670 1st Ave

The black and white cookie has been a staple for New Yorkers for generations and it is a must try for anyone visiting New York City. You can get the best black and white cookie at Glaser’s Bake Shop. First off the cookie is massive and they use vanilla and chocolate frosting instead of fondant. This all adds up to be a great tasty treat perfect on the go.

Insomnia Cookies – 299 E 11th St & Other Locations

Finally, craving cookies at night? Insomnia Cookies is your best bet as their stores are open and they will deliver fresh baked cookies until 3 AM. Their cookies just hit the spot at all hours of the day and they really keep you going!
