Tart....tart.... Tart

Ok, so all I meant to say is that go for the tarts in this small cost cafe. Waiting is normal as its small, so be patient if you want to enjoy the delicate prepared tarts. Service is good and to my surprise, staff didn't seem to be from Macau but Philippines, Vietnam and so on. I wonder if this... read more

always love their egg tarts! the cafe is rather small but cozy for an afternoon tea...plus the location is quite far. inspite of that... they offer the best egg tarts in macau! ( the bakery is located a few paces away if u prefer egg tarts which come straight from the oven )...

After ambling around the Coloane area near the bay, my wife and I elected to get a meal the the cafe. Due to it's location and popularity there was a short wait. The service was excellent and prompt; even asking me to ensure my wifi was working.. The seating was comfortable and tables clean. The food was fresh and well... More

Located in Coloane, the south-most island of the Macau region - it will take at least 30 minutes to an hour to get there depending on where you start. I travelled for more than 45 minutes on a public bus from Macau peninsula, passing Taipa before reaching Coloane. It was a rather pleasant ride as I get to see how... More

This is a great little cafe in Coloane, owned by the Lord Stow bakery group. It's small and a bit difficult to get a table, but well worth the wait because the menu is quite good. The service is excellent and the food is always tasty - both meat and vegetarian items. If it's too crowded they have a very... More

As some reviewers point out, there are three Lord Stowe shops in Coloane. The cafe opposite the bus stop, the small bakery shop, and the cafe around the corner from the bakery by the promenade. This is one I am reviewing. One of my favourite cafes in Macau, it is small cosy and has great food. The food is mainly... More

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 will have access to... More
