Wow you must visit this little coffee place, the best Portuguese tart you would ever eat! Such a shame it is so small as it can be very busy!

I've used this cafe on many occasions and the service is always friendly and efficient. They make really good illy coffee and the custard tarts are very fresh and delicious - it's easy to struggle not to eat too many. Make sure you don't leave your visit too late as they normally run out of tarts by late afternoon.

Go get them early in the morning. They run out of egg tarts as early as 3pm. They are the ones that come from Macau original shop. Its a must! Lovely with espresso!

Lord Stow Egg tarts are one of the best Portuguese egg tarts found in Macau. And now, they sell them in HK as well! Happy days for egg tart lovers. They are however, while stocks last. And when I reached at 4pm, I took the last four.

The crispy pastry skin goes very well with the custardy egg that it contained. The wonderful combination and taste of these famous tart is what lures me to go there two days in a row despite being far from where i stayed. I had managed to bring back some to Malaysia for friends and family after confirming with the staff... More

Looking for breakfast and chanced upon this cafe selling lord stow's famous egg tarts. Cant even find this on main macau peninsular. Have to go to coloane island. Honestly, coloane island tarts tasted better. Not sure if its quaint little island and nice cool seabreeze at coloane that made the piping hot egg tart a tad better. This will satisfy... More

This is one of our very favourite stops for a weekend afternoon coffee & snack in Hong Kong.

If you want something quick and informal this is great. The custard tarts are wonderful. If you want a full sit down breakfast i would go somewhere else. This is more of a standing round high tables affair.
