Levain Bakery isn’t usually one for special collaborations or seasonal flavors (why mess with a good thing?!), but a new limited-edition cookie launching today will both make your mouth water and do good. A portion of sales, up to $10,000, from the Café Con Leche cookie will be donated to two youth-based community organizations–Harlem Grown here in NYC and Horton’s Kids in Washington, D.C.

Tomorrow, Levain Bakery is opening a new location in Williamsburg, the first time New Yorkers will be able to get their hands on one of their six-ounce, deliciously gooey cookies in Brooklyn. Located at 164 North 4th Street, just off bustling Bedford Avenue, it will serve all their cookie varieties, along with bread, brioche, and coffee.

No need to travel uptown anymore when you have a craving for a gooey, half-pound cookie. Time Out NY tells us that Levain is opening a Noho outpost, their first downtown location, on February 26th. In addition to offering their four signature cookies–chocolate chip walnut, dark chocolate peanut butter chip, dark chocolate chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin–the new shop will have a yet-to-be-revealed new menu.
