Lord Stow's egg tarts now MOP9, still the best in Macau

One of the only true (5 star) foods to try in Macau would be Lord Stow's egg tarts (MOP 9) found in Coloane Village. We sometimes visit Coloane just for the tarts alone they are so good. Lord Stow's egg tarts are very well made and they sell enough that they are constantly baking, ensuring you... read more

We stopped by Lord Stow's Garden Cafe (the outlet on Rua da Cordoaria near the 26A bus stop) for a snack during our visit to Coloane. I should have gone to the bakery instead. The egg tart was excellent and I would order it again. The crust is flaky and the custard is creamy and delicious. I noticed that the... More

Lord Stow has three outlets in Coloane, the famous bakery where one can get egg tarts on take away as well as two Cafes. We chose to go to the older one which we know for several years. A great resting point as we had decided to have a longer walk at the beach at Hac Sa and its rocky... More

This is a good cafe. But if you are here for the egg tart, just go to the bakery and grab the hot ones just out of the oven. They do heat the egg tarts before serving here at this cafe, but they are not as hot as the ones at bakery. We tried at both place and the hot... More

Place "numero uno" to get an egg tart in Macau. It's not easy to get there for a foreigner though. Just take any bus to Coloane Village and you will end up there eventually.

After reading so many reviews i finally completed the Herculean task of finding this bakery in Venetian and the prize that awaited was delicious. Egg Tarts at their best. Even more amazing when served too hot. Loved them.

Just wanted to be clear. This is a review for the cafe that is around the corner from the bakery. Think some reviewers got this and the bakery mixed up. Love this cafe. I was so impressed with it that I am going to be here more often instead of the bakery. FOOD We got the Smoked Salmon Salad which... More

Claimed to be the origin of Portuguese Egg Tarts in Macau. We chose to stay at the cafe instead of the bakery cross the street as we preferred having a more relaxing experience....the overall ambience was good, friendly and warm, and full of aroma of egg tarts... But honestly speaking the other dishes including coffee, salad and sandwiches were not... More

Whenever me and my family holiday in Macau, it's always a foodie trip for us. My dad always gets the fruit cake, and I always get their Portuguese tarts. Can't go wrong here!
