Set on a small square at the entrance of Taipa Village is Sei Kee Cafe, a coffeeshop and takeaway joint very sought-after for its homemade milk tea, but also the claypot brewed coffee. They have been doing it according to the original recipe since 1965 and usually has a long queue of people waiting for their takeaway drinks which are ordered and delivered by the staff through a little window, since the cafe’s interior is not that wide.
It’s a simple, affordable and local eatery, where people can get snacks from early morning till late afternoon. Signature dishes–besides the drinks–include the “cubes” of bread with condensed milk, peanut butter and sprinkled with crunchy biscuit bits; but also sandwiches with jam, butter and other ingredients inside. There are also some noodles soup varieties. No rice dishes on the menu, as it’s more a place to snack than to have a proper and full meal.
Most of their drinks can be served hot or cold, with additional price for the latter choice. They also sell bottle of a very popular Macau and Hong Kong beverage: coffee with milk and tea.
Opening hours: daily, 10:00am–7:00pm
They also have the following branches:
- 7 Rua da Palha, Macau (Close to the Ruins of St. Paul)
- Av. Panorâmica dos Lagos Nam Van, Macau
