The Levian Bakery began in New York City where there are seven locations in the city and the Hamptons.
It has now opened its first location outside of New York in the space previously occupied by Johnny Rockets in Georgetown.
The bakery is particularly famous for its cookies. They are massive, weighing in at 6 ounces. They are crispy on the outside and more cookie-dough-like in the middle.
I first experienced the cookies when my niece sent me a box of 4 cookies which were delivered from New York before the Georgetown Bakery opened. The cookies cost $4 a piece.
A couple of weeks ago, on a Sunday morning Debbie, Carol, and I arrived at the bakery about 20 minutes before the 8 a.m. opening. Debbie was able to park in the same block on the same side of the street. The line was already 20 people long. There is contactless service and a limit on the number of visitors who can come in the store at the same time.
By the time Debbie and Carol arrived back at the car with their selections, coffee, and an espresso for me, the line extended along most of the block.
The menu includes the following cookies: Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chip, Two Chip Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Walnut (gluten free ingredients).
There are three “cakes” – Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Pumpkin Ginger Spice Cake, Lemon Cake.
Rolls and Breads – Baguette with Butter + Jam, Ciabatta, Country Baguette, Country Boule, Whole Grain Loaf, Whole Wheat Walnut Raisin loaf.
Pastries and Brioche – Blueberry Muffin, Plain Brioche, Chocolate Chip Brioche, Cinnamon Butter Brioche.
