We wanted to see, or rather taste, the difference of this famous 'brand'. The cafe is at the back of the original bakery and worth the trouble going round the corner. It offers small tables seating, serves its Portuguese egg tarts, of course, and light lunches. Service is attentive. Tarts are good and fresh from the oven. My fresh raspberry... More

Yes, I know you could get good egg tarts anywhere in Macau. But this one is special. This one is a must go, and is definitely worth the extra effort to commute to Coloane. The egg tarts are just delicate and absolutely the best I've tasted anywhere in the region. They have raised the bar and shown the world how... More

We went to the original site of this cafe, the egg tart was excellent. The selection of local cookies and sweets also interesting. We did not realise that they have a separate coffee shop next to it. Should have tried...

When it comes to Egg Tart, Lord Stow's still the best. Although, i sometimes buy from Cafe Nata because of its location which is convenient and near to where i stay but whenever i have a chance to go to Coloane, never i missed buying from them and sometimes, when you feel like being stressed and needed a place away...

I have eaten egg custards in the UK. but this Macau version is amazing - in flaky pastry shells they are a ttreat for the palate, and definately "more-ish". The cafe is new, and very attractive; great staff.

Lord Stow's Garden Cafe relocated to the ground floor space behind the original Bakery last summer, creating a much larger seating area for those interested in having a meal or proper sit down at Lord Stows. You can order the same famous Pastel de nata (Portuguese style egg tarts) MOP$9 each at the Garden Cafe and enjoy with a coffee,... More

coffee and egg tarts best in town and worth the walk down to Macau's scenic Coloane for lunch or just coffee and tarts

The Portuguese tarts are excellent, so is the environment on coloane island. Lord stow is a great place to go to if you are around the vicinity and definitely doesn't warrant a special trip just for this place.

The caramelized top sets this egg tart far above the rest. Go for the original egg tart, for Lord Stow's!

If you want a delicious egg tart or just a very well done brunch, this is where you should go. The shop is small and lines are frequent, but it is definitely worth the wait. The baked goods are all top notch and the service is friendly and prompt.
