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.

Hongkong and Macao are all about egg tarts and this is one of the best. They open at ten and the que grows fast. We were there five to and got the first egg tarts of the batch. Learning from the week that that was the ones you want. And as far as egg tarts go this was the best... More

It was super nice!!!! Last time I been here was 2-3 yrs ago. The taste of the egg tarts is still in good taste! Although is a bit far away from the city and casinos but this is a calm side of Macau. I had a egg tart MOP9 and a cup of fruit tea with honey MOP20, when I... More

Many restaurants in your own neighborhood are the best. The Garden Cafe is my favorite. Of course you can have egg tarts for dessert or with a cup of coffee or tea. (and no they are not overpriced as some reviewers say - they are less expensive than the poor imitations near the ruins of St Paul!) The menu is... More

The smell around this little group of buildings says it all - these are the best Portuguese egg tarts you will find - and that is after tasting some a few months earlier in Portugal itself. The Garden cafe is hidden around the corner, but it is a real gem for a light lunch, and to my surprise, offered Cornish... More
