I read about this place on trip advisor before heading over to Macau and made a beeline for the place as I am a huge fan of egg tarts. Bought a couple and was not disappointed. I found the staff very friendly and returned later in the day to have a few more. Again friendly staff who had a long... More

Morning breakfast totally destroyed by the attitude and rudeness of this lady boss!! Absolutely unfriendly and impatient to first time customer like myself. Portuguese egg tart nice though, but can be found easily elsewhere in the island. Not worth to patronize cafe that believes they can be so arrogant and disrespectful due to their fame. No loss to avoid this... More

Was going there for a nice tarts since i'm unable to make it to Lord's Stew in time. I need to line up a bit to get the tarts, and the people selling it seems impatient as I need to check on the price and choices for drinks. Bought 6 pcs of tarts and it tasted nice, although the pastry... More

So there are loads of positive writeups about Margaret's Cafe's egg tarts. I am not a fan of egg tarts, but the one at Lord Stow's made me reconsider, so I was very keen to try this one. On one visit to Macau, the line was so long, I skipped it. I decided to make the effort on the next... More

I was there early in the morning at 7.30am because I read online the shop opens at 7.30am. In fact the shop only opens at 8.30am! There's no proper Q system. Once the door opened, evereyone just dashed from all directions despite of the fact some of us who were there formed Q outside the shop. I only bought the... More

It was a few years ago (March 2012) but I visited Margaret's the day after visiting Lord Stow's Bakery. Let me put it this way, the cold, day old Portuguese tarts from Lord Stow's tasted better and were more fragrant than the piping hot ones at Margaret's. I will admit that the dozen tarts (from Lord Stow's) I was meant... More

I wonder how it garners so many good reviews. People must have been generous and patient. Egg tart with equal quality or even better can be found else where. The staffts and the lady boss are extremely rude. Being a tourists, we're not familiar with the culture or how to go about in the shop. Not that they did not... More

This is a commercial spot with the name of a very famous cake but the quality is poor and the higiene a nightmare. The cakes are terrible some sort of imitation for Chinese taste. The facilities to seat terrible. The smell and the dirt accumulate around the area where are places available to sit that are invaded by Chinese tours... More

Being in Macau one just have to try the famous egg tart - Margaret's Cafe e Nata is supposed to be one of the best and they didn't disappoint. Not too sweet, the custard is velvety and smooth, the pastry is crispy. Only drawback is that it is served on a paper plate...
