Terra has really, really, REALLY good espresso and cappuccino. You can also get your coffee spiked with a stronger liquid, to elevate the after-taste. Absolute, top-notch, great stuff, and I give it a top recommendation, despite my grave annoyance with them, for something that wasn't really their fault.

Take a tip, and don't do what I did. To get to Largo do Santo Agostinho from Largo do Senado, go to the westernmost point of the square, and take Rua do Sr Soares up one block to the fork in the road. Take the left fork, Colcada do Tronco Velho, which is a noticably steep uphill trudge to St. Augustine's church and square. I made the mistake of doing this about 8:30 one morning, and there was no Terra on top. There were, however, a few shops across the square from the church with metal shutters rolled down. I figured I must have come too early, so I tried again, at 11:00 in the morning. Same thing: all the way up the hill and still no Terra. Now, in New Orleans all the best cafe au lait joints are open 24/7. In San Francisco, most coffeehouses are open by 7:00 in the morning, and all of them are open by 8:00. I actually gave up on Terra when I couldn't even find it at 11:00, but I happened to be crossing the square (from A-Ma to Leal Senado) about 3:00 in the afternoon, and there they were! As suspected, Terra was behind one of the roll-down steel shutters. The name painted on the glass underneath the shutter obviously did nothing to identify the place after the shutter was lowered. And Terra doesn't open until noon. So, wonderful, wonderful coffees and a great place, but if you're looking for that first cup in the morning, you'll have to look elsewhere.

By the way: Terra guys! Please figure out a way to put your hours of operation on the OUTSIDE of that shutter!

Terra has not changed and the team is still there...
More addition to this treasure box at St Augustine square is the biscuits...and the freshly served Lemonade.
Stop there if you pass by Macau.

Best coffee I've found in Macau. Great location looking out on to St Augustine's square. Much quieter than Senado. Really enjoyed it and will be back.

Wandering Macau is something we've done for 25 years. Our itineraries basically keep to back streets and restaurants, looking for details and charm. What a delight it was to recently come across Terra. A stone's throw from the crowded plaza of Leal Senado, and on one of prettiest quiet squares in the area (which has free government wifi if you step outside). And perfect coffee, made with real craft and concern. A new point on our emotional map of Macau.
