Lord Stows Cafe - a great haven right in the centre of the village of Coloane. I love this place. When you have done the sights - take the weight off your feet and tuck into an original egg custard tart - made famous by the Portuguese. Far superior to what are sold in shops as freshly baked on the... More

We found these egg tarts in Osaka, where there is a kiosk in the busy street of Dotonbori, near the canal. We bought one each in 2002 on a family visit, then had to come back and buy a box the next day. We were delighted to find, in 2014, the stall is still there, and they taste just as... More

Love this place, one of my favourite places to eat in Macau. They used to have a lovely garden that you could sit in and watch the pet tortoises roaming around but sadly they renovated and dont have this anymore. Fantastic food and good selection, have loved averything i have tried so far. Service is good too but they get... More

You will never find such a good egg tart in other places. Freshly made, the egg custard is not too heavy, and the tart base is just crunchy. Must re-visit again!

We bought a box of six egg tarts for the six of us to share only to realise that we each wanted a box of our own! :)

i heard of a lot about this egg tarts legend before but only after i had one in front of me did i realized that all were true - very inviting, delicious and a feeling of "i want some more". btw, i had them in the Venetians casino.

I sampled a lot of egg tarts while in Macau and Lords stow were by far my favorite. They also do a good cappuccino. I would definently recommend this cafe.

My family had our brunch in the Garden Cafe. The Filipino waiters provided excellent service. The food was great and the serving size was huge. We had baked potato with mushroom, bacon and cheese, tom yum kung, beef and sausage pie, and clubhouse sandwiches. The cost per meal was high but each meal, except for the soup, could be shared...

We had lunch here and waited for a few minutes because the cafe was full. But it was worth the short wait! We ordered salmon quiche and a fish pie and both were so delicious that we thought we would have no space left for the egg tarts! The egg tarts melted in our mouths...so superb and heavenly! The cafe... More

A nice little cozy cafe with excellent service from the waiter. Egg tart is a must to order. Really glad we decided to visit this place.
