ISO Delicious Bakery Cookies...not Levain

pbjluver Nov 9, 2009 06:39 AM

I need to bring bakery cookies to a meeting and refuse to pay Levain's $5 per cookie price.
Will travel anywhere in Manhattan. Any suggestions?

Must be cookies...no cupcakes.

    Levains cookies are $4 each and worth every cent.

      They're also pretty much the equivalent of three normal-size cookies.

        Not if you have 4 kids and you buy one for each!

        Is this what you mean by "bakery cookies"?

          I love Ruby et Violette which is over in Midotwn West. There is also a great place right off Union Square on 4th avenue and 12th street but I cannot remember the name for the life of me- maybe another hound can help out. They were amazingly good cookies for only around $2 a pop.
