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!

If you are willing to trade their typical (HK) not-smiling, rush-you-through, don't-bother-with-service attitude with delicious hot right out-of-the-oven Portuguese egg tarts, go get them! And apart from the egg tarts, don't bother with anything else, not even their coffee.. This joint is tucked inside a small lane, so do ask for direction when you get near, it's behind ICBC Bank.

Location is nice, egg tart is good but not best, queue is an art, 15 minutes to 20 minutes, well worth the wait

One of the best egg tarts i've tried! I had to queue for about 15-20 minutes to buy the tarts as the shop looks popular. Really worth queuing!
