What is La Levain?
– GLOBAL INFLUENCES

– ONLY QUALITY INGREDIENTS
– CUSTOMER OBSESSION
– AUTHENTIC ARTISANAL BAKING
– LOCAL NOVEL FUSION
Amidst the eclectic charm of hardware stores,
boutique hotels and cafes along Hamilton Road,
a new artisanal bakery cafe concept has entered the fray – La Levain.
La Levain means starter or leavening agent made from flour and water in French. The baking journey begins with it and the cafe will intrigue you through an experience of the artisanal baking journey with a bevy of French classics and creative bakes.
With the cosy space outfitted in industrial-like grey interiors, rustic wooden furniture and neon orange lighting, along with a show kitchen to watch fresh bakes being baked on the spot, this minimalist cafe lets you find your inner calm away from the hustle in a central yet off-beat Jalan Besar enclave. Perfect for cafe-hoppers, dates, social gatherings and family friendly crowds with its provision of cool coloring sets as you enjoy the comforting brunch fare, delish baked treats and specialty coffee.
La Levain is not just an artisanal bakery cafe. Le Levain is a baking journey. It is an experience created out of experiences amassed along the way.
With an emphasis on artisanal bakes created through Chef Wythe’s personal travel encounters and yearning for new and innovative baking experiences, the selection of pastries is designed to create an experiential journey, one of indulgence in French classics and more baked treats. With you in mind.
