Went to Coloane specifically to try this place. I ordered the Macanese Capela which is meat loaf, salad, and baked(?) potato with cheese. The food is good, with the serving good for two people already. My girlfriend ordered the mango cheesecake which she enjoyed. Staff is also very nice and attentive. Will visit this cafe again when I'm in the... More

It's been years since I've been back to this bakery. Somehow I've managed to get these delicious eggs tarts consistently without ever having to physically go to the show simply because it's such a big tourist attraction, people always buy plenty to take away. My actual recent visit wasn't great. The egg tarts were fine but definitely not fresh. Saying... More

Gosh I swear I put on 3kgs just on the breathing the air surrounding the bakery. There is a nice Cafe at the back where you can have a cuppa and enjoy your Egg Tart however we didn't stay to dine as this was dessert before lunch. The bakery contained a surprisingly large amount of other cakes and tidbits which... More

This is the place to get egg tarts in Asia (although, according to a tour guide I know, Lord Stowe's family gave the recipe away after he died...). Try the rose latte, it's pretty good, too.

Great place to get egg tarts. My grandma is a huge fan of egg tarts so a friend introduced us to Lord Stows and said they were the best in Macau. I would highly recommend making the journey here.

This is a definite repeat visit for me as my parents loves the quaint little village that it's situated in. It's also near the small Coloane harbour with fishermen selling their wares. We had the baked potato with mushrooms and cheese. The potato was huge and tasty! We had club sandwiches and a breakfast platter to share. Not forgetting to... More

Visiting Coloane, Macao is a lovely experience in itself and stopping at Lord Stow's to enjoy the original egg tart is the icing on the cake (or egg in your tart)! They are so yummy and fresh.

I was shopping at Venetian and needed a quick bite. I had a quiche lorraine with Salad, it's a good portion and the egg tart is a must to try!
