Four Leaves have always been my choice of bakery whenever I need a snack or two. With the mini breads prices at 5 for $2.95, I find myself irresistibly indulging in more as they were cheaper the more you buy. Some of my favourite mini breads include the sugar plait, coffee steamed bun and crab meat bun. Also, the chocolate brownie makes a killer dessert with ice cream you can buy from supermarkets (thus cheap too!).

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.

Not really value for money.

For as long as I could remember, Four Leaves has been around in almost every shopping mall in Singapore. They offer a variety of breads and cakes. Over the years, I've noticed that the portions of the pastries have been shrinking and the prices soaring. A simple bread sandwich can easily be over $1.50.

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.

I have bought 2 birthday cakes from four Leaves over the last year and I have to admit, I was a bit let down by the quality. The first time, I bought an Almond Fruit Top from their Bugis Junction outlet. When the cake was cut and served to everyone, there were many comments from the guests that it was slightly hard, and that the fruits used were not fresh.

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.

Having a wide array of cakes and bread, it provides many choices for breakfast and snack for everyone.

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.

Mini buns not worth money
Overall Score

Despite the many rave reviews about the mini buns sold in four leaves, i'm going to give my 2 cents about this matter. The mini buns are well, mini. They're just tiny pieces of flour with minimal filling in them. Ok, don't get me wrong. I LOVE bread and I love Fourleaves. However, I think that the mini buns are priced too high. If you ever get the chance to buy the chocolate-filled mini buns, you'd realise that the buns aren't really filled with chocolate. I was so disappointed that I spent 2 dollars on 3 tiny pieces of dough that did not taste all that good.
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.

I do not frequent Four Leaves often cause i do not like their bread. Visually, the bread offered by Four Leaves do not looking appealing to me. They look heavily over-glazed to give the shiny look and it just look artificial and oily. And because of that, i have the impression that the bread is rather unhealthy.

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.
