Do you always have room for dessert even though you just had a full meal with appetizers and mains? Don’t worry, we’re not judging because we do too! Here are five dessert spots around town where you can cure your sweet cravings!
The word bleisure comes from the mashing of the words business and leisure as this cafe is located in the commercial center of Macau next to the lake. They are the only cafe in Macau that serves coffee from beans supplied by Simplii Yours. A unique drinking experience is their rainbow latte that will definitely brighten up your day. They also create lovely animal lattes, from cats to bears—we love wobbling them while using the boomerang app! A customer favorite is the giant toast box, ice cream served up in a box that’s made of toast. No one will even know where to begin digging in! Our tip: eat everything inside first and when you start breaking the giant toast, cut it into pieces and smother with the remaining melted ice cream. Make sure to invite a friend or two to partake, because this simply must be shared. We also like their homemade Japanese green tea crepe cake and tiramisu version.
If you’re looking for some eye-catching cakes, head over to Rua do Noronha and at a small and quiet corner find the humble Rocca Patisserie. Desserts here are more than just a sweet craving for them as their creations are an expression of their art. Everything is hand-crafted using natural ingredients and lots of passion. Experience genuine flavors and textures. They come out with a new cake collection every season. We first visited here during the spring loved how everything looked so appealing! Their cakes are as tasty to look at as they are to eat. Our favorite is their “Rosy” which reminds us of the rose from Beauty and the Beast. We enjoyed each layer of smooth oolong tea cream, rose mousse and compote, poached mango, and oolong tea sponge cake all in one bite! We even appreciated the tiny details like the drop of water that made the rose look even more realistic. Each cake will definitely surprise you with unique features. Their summer collection “Les Fruits Frais” features captivating real-looking fruits in cake forms like green granny smith apples, red fuji apples, and lemons. We can’t wait for more surprises for the next season!
Miss M Food
Located at the foot of St. Lawrence church, Miss M Food serves everything homemade like their daily special chiffon cakes. The classic light, airy cake has a pillowy texture that is perfect if you’re looking for a light dessert to enjoy. Finding it hard to come across good English scones in Macau, Miss M decided to bake their own to satisfy their cravings and share their love for scones with the community. They are made authentically with hints of lemon and served with jam for a sweet and flaky treat. We also like rinsing down the desserts with their infused rosemary lemon tea. The herb adds a savory depth and flair to the lemon tea, making it a soothing and refreshing drink. They also serve chocolate pistachio lava cake, oatmeal and raisin cookies, crunch cakes made with homemade caramel and light cream, and more lovely pastries.
Oden is a type of Japanese street snack of skewers similar to those curry fish ball stands in San Malo and what they call “Lok lok” in Singapore and “Tusok tusok” in the Philippines—which literally means “to poke” in Tagalog. Oden Studio is Macau’s first Japanese kanto cooking shop with oden imported directly from Japan. They serve food with no MSG added and only use all natural ingredients too. Here, you can taste the authenticity all the way from Japan as the owner and cook are from Osaka. Aside from oden, the dessert highlight here is their sakura shingen mochi, a.k.a. the wobbly water “cake”. Actually referred to as a mochi cake but tastes like jelly, sprinkled with a bit of matcha sugar and drizzled with some homemade syrup for that pleasant natural sweetness. Make sure to eat it within 30 minutes or it’ll vanish into a sweet puddle of water.
D’light Dessert Cafe
Feel delightful and eat light desserts (hence their cafe name) here. This is one of our favorite sweet spots to relax and enjoy. With a comfortable and spacious layout. We absolutely love their tiramisu dessert and ginger milk curd mousse cake. What makes their tiramisu treat unique is how they’ve separated the ladyfinger cookies as a base topped with light mascarpone with a sheet of chocolate and edible gold served with a shot of hot chocolate, instead of stacking and layering dipped ladyfinger biscuits in coffee and mascarpone. Pour over the hot drink and watch the chocolate melt over the dessert and enjoy every bit of it! Their ginger milk curd mousse cake has an interesting flavor and silky texture—this is an adaptation of a popular Cantonese dessert but has been recreated in a cake form for cake lovers to experience a different taste. To pair with these desserts, we love their white ginger pear from Tea Forte. Add a bit of honey to bring out the flavor and craft an exceptional tea experience. We also adore their green alien (matcha) tea latte inspired from Toy Story.
