The location of this is very near Grand Lisboa (new one), well if you can see it or near there, you are in the right direction and not too far. Simply just ask people around and you will know. In fact, after looking at some of the older reviews from other websites (not too old, in 2014), the price has... More

The famous Portuguese tart (MOP 10)is quite nice here, a little bit oily but tasty. Try the ice milk tea (MOP 16), it is a very excelent!!!! The seating area little bit messy and dirty but is understandable since they receive a lot of person for the tarts. The place is located very conveniently, on the way to arrive to... More

Very packed small cafe, everyone is busy so things run fast, long queue... The Portuguese egg tarts are worth the wait, but a little pricey... A must try delicacy in Macau! Highly recommended to have a try...

We have been to Macau 2 times and each this store was sold out. Finally the 3th attempt was the good one. The eggtarts were creamy and heavy, but it all tasted very delicious. We didn't try the eggtarts of the other stores though. In general the eggtarts were tasty without any other references.

Their egg tart is the best, flaky crust and creamy egg custard filling that it's worth queuing in line for 10-15 minutes for it to be freshly baked. MOP10 for 1 and MOP55 for 6.

One of the best Portuguese tart I had in Macau. Though we have to queue up for the freshly baked tarts but the service was real quick. The shop is hidden at the back of the main street with no sign board on the main street, make sure you check the map / location first before getting there.

We love this egg tart but we both think Lord Stow's was just little bit (slightly) better. Still it was worth coming here all the way from Cotai just to eat the egg tart for breakfast. From this cafe, we walked to Senado Square.

This is your typical barebones bakery like many others tucked in an alley in Macau near the Senado Square. What sets it apart is the long queue that's at its doors all the time. If you're lucky you can only be in line 10 minutes tops. Service is fast and no-nonsense. This bakery is manned by inhospitable, brusque, middle-aged women... More

What a fabulous little treat! Long line of people waiting to buy these fresh made delights. If you love egg custard tarts, these are the best in Macau!
