Why Lord Stow's Bakery is special ?
The Portuguese egg tarts at Lord Stow's Bakery are a truly iconic Macau treat. Get them fresh at the original Lord Stow's in Coloane village, and enjoy while strolling through the sites.
This creamy, delicious Macanese take on the Portuguese pastéis de nata is a must-have when one visits Macau. And the name oft-mentioned in Macau when one talks about Portuguese egg tarts must be Lord Stow's Bakery in the tiny village of Coloane.
Served hot from the ovens, the flaky, buttery pastry combined well with the creamy-rich custard. Lord Stow's version is not overly-sweet like some renditions one gets elsewhere. Copycats about all over Macau and neighbouring Hong Kong, but Lord Stow's stood out with the smooth, delicate texture of its custard.

Last time visiting Coloane is like 5 years ago and this time I am shocked to see there are at least 3 places in the Coloane area names 'Lord Stow's Bakery' - about 3 cafe and 1 take away shop? We picked the one around the corner and asked the staff what is the difference. They said the egg tarts are all the same but the main dishes in each cafe are different. So I guess it won't make a difference if you only want to try and egg tarts and have a cup of tea. The tarts are still as yummy as 5 years ago - at least they keep their quality even they are more popular and have more branches now. Never tried their shop in Venetian but I think I will still prefer the Coloane shop whenever I want to have the tarts.
Even though there are some shops in the Cotai strip mall that sells egg tart. Me and my husband decided to go to Coloane to try the famous egg tart there. We were really satisfied and feels great! Egg tart was amazing plus a good place to walk around. 1 egg-tart cost $9 macau patacas (around $1 USD/51.30 PHP)
