Four Leaves is a chain bakery in Singapore. It was established since 1981. We started our first humble outlet at Nutmeg Road, and have since successfully launched our central factory located at Enterprise Road and 28 retail outlets in Singapore. These include the brand names of Panaderia (Great World City), St. Leaven (Takashimaya), Peck (Takashimaya), Epid'or (Raffles City), and Splash & Decker (Ngee Ann Polytechnic & Nanyang Polytechnic). In addition, we also have two subsidiaries in Kuala Lumpur and Penang of Malaysia. We are committed to providing innovative and quality bakery products to our customers, so it has always been a Four Leaves policy to bring in Japanese technical advisors to constantly create new products, and implement stringent quality control. Walking into any Four Leaves bakery, you will be welcome by the aroma of the freshly baked products, as well as the wide range of products that we offer. Four Leaves... It's all about PASSION, CHOICE & TRUST!
Other than that, I have to admit that the recent promotions are really good, You can even mix and match different breads. Just don't buy the mini buns.
However, despite the slightly unreasonable price, the quality of the pastries are still there. The breads are fluffy and soft, while the cakes are moist and creamy. If there is a cake flavour I would recommend, it would definitely be the Strawberry Shortcake. The sponge cake is very moist. I've always been trying to figure out what cream it is but until now, it's still a mystery. The cream is very much different from the cream that other bakeries use. Its sweetness is just right and it has a slightly fruity taste to it I guess?
Overall, I would try to avoid buying from Four Leaves as I do not believe that it is value for money. Unless I am very hungry or when my wallet does not have so much empty spaces, I would buy simple breads from Four Leaves to fill my stomach.
The second occasion was when I purchased their Chocolate Classico, which I have to admit looked simply beautiful. but when I gave the outlet manager feedback on my previous experience with the sub-standard Almond Fruit Top cake, the outlet manager did not respond or even show the slightest regret. Nevertheless I bought the Chocolate Classico and went back home. Disappointingly, the taste of the cake did not at all reflect that it came from an established chain like Four Leaves. The cake was too dry and too heavy, with most of the guests leaving their slices unfinished.
Disappointing, to say the least.
Other than the mini bread, the dorayaki makes yummy and affordable breakfast. It is sold singly and pre-wrapped to be brought around with great convenience. Some of the cakes are worth a try too.
Four Leaves also frequently come up with the loyalty program where you can collect stamps in exchange for discounts and special gifts.
Ever since I had the strawberry shortcake during my 17th birthday, I liked it so much that my friends got the same cake to celebrate my 18th birthday as well. And for a daily snack, I occasionally purchase the small whole cake to eat on my own. The cream is slightly sweet, with soft vanilla chiffon cake and filled with big pieces of strawberry, delicious.
The raisin walnut crescent is my favourite bread from Four Leaves, since I like raisins and walnut. Each bite is soft, sweet and crunchy. For a light snack, small pieces of bread can be purchased at one for $0.70, three for $1.95 and five for $2.95. The lucky star, little brownie and little danish apple are worth a try. There are many other options to choose from as well. Although this option provides many choices, it is merely a snack and a little expensive for the price and the size of the buns received.
There seems to be always many choices of bread available for purchase, even near to closing time. Purchasing bread to be kept overnight is acceptable, as the bread does not change its taste.
Also, i do not like the way that their bread is being display. Recently at Yew Tee, one of their bread was actually already filled fully on the display racks, but i saw the staff took a few more pieces from somewhere and started stacking the bread on each other. When i look at that, i just felt that there must be a better way to display this bread for the customers to choose. By doing this, it just give the impression that the staff is not interested in the bread. Also, i find that the bread are not arranged properly and neatly. Maybe other customers may have messed up the arrangement, but the staff could try to arrange it back neatly once in a while to give the customers a good impression.
Their mix and match mini buns are a great idea to allow more choices at the same price. But their presentation needs improvement to attract people.
Most of their breads cost between $1 to $2, but you get superb quality. They use premium ingredients and minimize the use of butter so their breads are not so oily. The greatest example of this is their Walnut Raisin Croissant Bread. You can tell from the first bite that their walnuts are fresh from their crispness.
My favourite item at Four Leaves is their strawberry shortcake. They cover the cake in a very light fresh cream that does not use butter, so instead of the oily feeling you get when eating other cakes, this cream on this cake just leave you yearning for more.
It’s popular for good reason too! With bread that go for an average of $1.20 per piece, the bread is cheap and satisfying. However, the true stars of the bakery are their cakes. My absolute favorite is their Coco Exotic cake. With a praline base and a rich, chocolate-y top layer complete with hazelnut notes, it’s an absolute delight that you wouldn’t expect to find at only $4.10 per piece.
The strawberry shortcake is another popular item. It is light and pleasant, not cloyingly sweet like typical shortcakes. For cakes and buns at cheap prices which do not compromise on quality, Four Leaves is the way to go!
I love the red bean walnut bread from Four Leaves as the bread is very soft and they are extremely generous with their red bean and walnuts. Moreover, the crust of the bread is covered in sesame seeds to give it the extra crunch!
Four leaves is my usual go-to for breakfast. Given its ubiquity, it is extremely convenient and there is nothing I don’t love about Four Leaves! Perhaps a suggestion is that they should serve coffee alongside bread.
My favourite is the sugar chocolate donut rolls. Not failing its name, these chocolate flavoured donuts are generously powdered with icing sugar, and every bite is a sugary explosion. The donut itself is soft and slightly chewy. Their tuna buns are also worth getting - they are really tasty and the tuna seems fresh. The strands of onions irk me though, they give a crunch which in my opinion, disrupts the soft texture of the whole bun.
Four Leaves also have sales where you can buy more to get a greater discount. It’s really affordable and those old cashier aunties are always really friendly. If you get something from Four Leaves, request for them to package your buns in one plastic bag to save the environment!
My sweet tooth hasn’t changed at all, with my absolute favourite being the Twisty, a chocolate and vanilla twisted bread covered with icing sugar. It was one of the buns my mum would bring home after work for me to have it for breakfast, and it took mega willpower for me to resist eating them until the next morning. Four Leave’s Strawberry Shortcake is my all-time favourite cake as well, a cake I definitely would have for all my birthdays.
The usual buns such as the Hotdog Bun and Chicken Floss Bread are staple in every bakery, and Four Leaves does them well. The smell of baking bread is so tantalizing every time I walk past Four Leaves on my way to school, I could only wish they opened earlier!
At Takashimaya outlet, there is the brownie which i love too. I'm particular about brownie being not too hard nor too small and that it does not break into bits easily when bitten. Theirs prove just the type i like!
I notice that the variety of buns and their prices differ from outlet to outlet. The outlet at Takashimaya has many more variety of buns than other outlets. (Maybe it is St Leavens and not Four Leaves.) It would be good if the flavours at St Leavens could be introduced to Four Leaves too!
I love their steamed cheesecake as well. Its flavour isn't too overpowering but can keep you contented. Munching on something so soft is really just a delight for the mouth.
I've come across a few times where their buns taste rather stale, though.
However, when it comes to cakes I love to buy from them! Out of 5 birthdays cakes I would buy 4 from them. I simply love their cheesecake. Heavy, rich and creamy. Creamy, not milky. Crisp hard base that melts in your mouth, leaving a hint of savoury saltiness that compliments the strong tasting cake. I suggest people buying the individual piece to try first. It cost about $3.
If you love crabstick from those japanese ramen, you would definately love the crabstick bun from Four Leaves where they use the exact same japanese crabstick for their buns. It's an extraordinary flavours which is exclusively available to Four Leaves only.
However it will be good if you ask them to separate the three buns into three plastic bags because usually they would put all the buns together in a small plastic bag, and if you do not eat immediately, you will realise that your bread will be slightly squash after a few hours later.
There are also times when I try to divert my attention to their breads instead. Each bread cost you around 70 cents, but you will only need to pay $2.95 for any 5 pieces of bread. Wow, isn't it! That is why I love Four Leave! Love their mini bread promotion! Because it is super worth the buy. Hit the Like button if you love their min bread promotion too!
