My all-time favourite bakery
Overall Score 
 
4.0
The competition among bakeries in Singapore today is intense, with many small $1 bread shops popping up in the heartlands. Four Leaves has been around way before this trend started, and still holds its own as an old-timer among a crowd of start-ups.

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.

One of Singapore’s oldest bread

Four Leaves, alongside Breaktalk, were one of the first bakeries to open in Singapore. They serve flavours spanning from the traditional red bean bread to more avant-garde flavours such as chocolate raisin. On average, a bread from Four Leaves costs $1.50, an extremely affordable snack!

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.

Sugary donuts and tasty buns at a really affordable price

Rushing to have breakfast on a school day isn’t something foreign to many students out there. Cereal and milk takes too long, and whipping up something is out of the question for grumpy morning people like me. Four Leaves bread has been my breakfast companion for all those rushed mornings, and they are enough to keep my tummy filled.

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!

Four Leaves had always been a part of my childhood - well, it actually still is a significant part of my life. The buns and cakes I’ve enjoyed as a kid still exist today, and still taste equally good.

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!

I patronise Four Leaves the Tiong Bahru outlet every sunday and would almost always buy the pork floss buns. They are small and fluffy and feels like eating "air", not really value for money but nevertheless i love their texture.

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!

Love their mini hot dog buns!
Overall Score 
 
3.5
What I absolutely love the most about Four Leaves is their mini hot buns. They taste awesome and are perfect as quick snacks to carry around with their small size. There's a small bit of cream on top of each bun that tastes really good and really helps it to stand out from the standard hot dog buns. But sadly, it's just a small portion. And their mini buns are a bit expensive, in my opinion.

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.

Every morning, thinking of what to eat for your breakfast? For me, as I'm a bread lover, breads are always a must have in my every morning breakfast. I usually like to buy cute little mini breads from Four leaves where they are selling 3 for $1.95, usually 3 mini breads are enough to fill my stomach. There are a lot of variety to choose from, and I would recommend you three of my favourites that I always bought, they are: the crabstick bun, chicken mushroom bun and cheese sausage bun.

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.

I am a cake lover. As long as the cake is not ridiculously creamy or overly sweet, I am fine with it. However, cakes nowadays aren't really cheap, the same goes to the cakes from Four Leaves. I love eating cake in big portion. It somehow makes me feel satisfied after gobbling big mouthful of cake. However, thinking that a small 15cm by 15cm Light Cheese Cake will cost me 28 bucks, it just spoils my appetite. Sometimes, I can only choose to walk away without buying any cakes.

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!

Four Leaves make great strawberry shortcakes. Not only do they look appealing, the cake itself is soft and fluffy. The white cream is not overpowering as it is of a light texture. The strawberry could be fresher but overall, the cake is satisfying. On some days I like to buy a single slice to satisfy my cravings for cakes. I have purchased the larger size for birthdays and an ice packet is included to make sure the surrounding temperature of cake stays constant before you can store it in the fridge. You would not expect this service if you were to buy a birthday cake from neighborhood bakeries.

Another cake that I have tried from Four Leaves is the Blueberry Yogurt Cake. This is a cake that I have to preorder. I was given a receipt for collection and even had to specify the time I would come down and collect. The staff initiated the checking of cake even though I forgot, so I thought it was very thoughtful of her. She also attended to me promptly even though I was just standing there, waiting for her.

The name of the cake sounds interesting because I really like flavored yogurt. The appearance of the cake did not disappoint. It is a pretty purple square cake. The few blueberries and raspberries on top of the cake are really fresh and sweet, it would be great if there are more. I would recommend one to consume it chilled. If the taste of the yogurt is stronger, I would like the cake more.

A single slice of strawberry shortcake cost about $4.80 while the 15cm cake is $26. A 15cm Blueberry Yogurt Cake cost $28 and preorder 2-3 days in advance.

Belgian waffles and cheese sticks!
(Updated: November 20, 2012)
Overall Score 
 
4.0
If you happened to buy bread from Four Leaves, make sure you pick the Belgian waffles! It also comes in chocolate. I like chocolate but I got tired of the taste after a couple bites. So personally, I prefer the original one. The cheese sticks are also one of my personal favorites. Soft and tender, they smell great! For the Mini Breads, it's recommended to buy 5 pieces.

The cakes were heavenly as well. They are so sweet that it will send the sweet tooth in you right to the moon! Oreo and cheese lovers should try the Oreo Cheese Cake. A 15cm cake can costs about $28. The novelty cakes were pretty impressive as well. Little girls will love the Snowie and Friends aka Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I can't say the same for the cartoon cakes though. They look pretty ordinary, nothing unique about them.

Same goes for the special occasions and zodiac cakes. In my opinion, Four Leaves' Classic Cakes are the best.
