“Homemade traditional ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Saw from another TA user that this ice cream shop was near my hotel (Royal Hotel) so decided to hunt for it on the way back from Senado. It is a really traditional shop, simple layout and no fancy tableware. It was okay for me though, I liked that it was old school!

On to the ice cream, you can tell they were homemade. Not the creamiest but you can taste the real ingredients used to make the ice cream. My family and I had 4 scoops altogether.. Mango, honeydew, coconut and yam. Mango was pretty good, did have some flavouring I think. The yam was not bad too but it wasn't smooth, kind of broke apart the moment I put my spoon into it.

One scoop was 9MOP and each scoop is very small. So I guess it's kinda pricey. Probably should get the sundaes or ice cream sandwich if you want better value.

Overall it was an interesting experience. Worth visiting after a long day of walking or shopping!

“Taste of the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Old-fashioned ice cream made the old-fashioned way. The most popular item would be the Ice Cream Sandwich here. It consists of vanilla, coffee and coconut ice cream folded in between wafer layer. It's a small amount, so you have plenty of room for other treats.

Another one you might want to try is the Ice cream bricks. It comes in many flavors, we tried Mango and it is quite a disappointment! Taste fake for this one. Would recommending trying other flavors instead.

The restaurant also serve simple hot dishes, such as noodles and sandwiches. We didn't try, but wouldn't expect a lot from it.

Environment and service-wise, it's not excellent but not bad either. Considering how is a family business (I think), service would be simple. Waitresses were not rude either, but you'll see them sitting at a table chatting away.

It's on the way to St. Paul's ruins, so be on the look out for it!

“Good taste of the 50's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

It's an old fashioned coffeeshop, difficult to notice on one of the major streets in Macau. For tourists it is easier to reach, because it's on the way from the St.Paul's ruins to the nicely renovated Tap Seac Square, with its beautiful period houses.So, this place could well be planted in some 50's movie, for the kind of tables and tiles. But you see the list and you understand the rest, It is set under the tableglass, an old style two-colour cream coloured paper! You can choose anything, but go for the wonderful homemade ice creams, the reason behind the existence of this place. There's the old-fashioned icecream sandwich! Go for it!
