I always will buy both. This one and Lord Stove. The Egg tarts are nicer compared to the attitudes of the worker. You need to order your stuff fast, before you get scolded as there's a very long queue outside.

The egg tarts really are very nice. In terms of the attitude of the workers, the lady at the checkout, who I guessed was the owner or at least the manager, was quite playful with me, we had a bit of a laugh, but yes she expects you to be quick, but this is because there is a long queue... More

Cannot leave Macau for not taking any of the egg tarts, always dine in even hard to get seat, yes! Agree with PatsynFamily, workers' attitude not so friendly and quite inpatient, you have to decide & order FAST when it's reach your turn to pay at the Cashier counter, what to do.... business is so good ....

It's more like a bakery than a cafe, prefer to take away as the seat outside is too hot. I tried their cookies which is very interesting and will definitely visit again.

This is the 2nd time I visit Margaret's cafe. It still gives me the same warm egg tarts, but the attitude of the workers is still cold and mechanism like. Not a smile, always rushing you to place your order, collect the money, collect the tart, get out. So business like, so unfeeling. Even if it was the lady boss... More

We came across Margaret's as we were walking towards Senado Square from New Yaohan. From all the reviews, it seems that the lady boss has her mood. Thankfully for us, when we went in the afternoon, she was in good mood and it was crowded but hardly any queue. We bought two Portuguese tarts as takeaway. We didn't want to... More

We went in the morning for breakfast. As the menu is behind the cashier and we were queuing to place order and make payment, we don't know what's in the menu and was asking if they have ice milo. They refused to tell us but just point to the menu hanging behind her and ask us to see for ourselves... More

The Portuguese egg tart was really nicest after trying 5 different cafe/shop. But also the most unfriendly staff. Very long queue. Still have to wait 20 minutes for the egg tart ready. Meantime, they not allowed us to have the coffee first, even it was ordered at the same time. What a weird arrangements.
