Not so famous as Lord Stows. It's said that they used to be the couple and shared the same recipe, but divorced and then separated into two branches.

Come here for the good, light and flaky egg tart but don't expect friendly service. You know the Seinfeld soup nazi episode? The folks at Margaret's probably taught him a thing or two. Here are some donts: Don't take pictures IN the store, they'll yell at you. Don't be in the store if you're not the one ordering. My boyfriend... More

If food is all you care about, Margaret's is the best. It is fast, quick, cheap and tasty. The egg tarts are mouth watering and the pastries are uber yummy. The coffee is also excellent. Try the Danishes too. That said, you better know what you want when you get to the till. The staff do not handle slower customers... More

Had breakfast here after getting off from the Hotel Sintra shuttle. Walked for 2minutes, passing by Caravela, another recommended restaurant. Tried to order sandwiches from the cashier as people coming in go straight to her but she pointed us to the counter where we chose our bread and fillings before paying. We also tried their egg custards which we're piping... More

Stayed at Sofitel hotel and was advised to visit Margaret's Cafe e Nata. OMG are they AMAZING. There was a queue but it moved quickly. The seating area outside provided a nice spot to pig out in. Deffo worth a visit if in Macau!!

This is a must stop for lovers of Portuguese tarts. The egg custard filling is beatufully prepared and not too sweet. This place also sells other breads and sandwiches but the reason to visit is for the tarts. Dont leave Macau without trying these. Its situated on a bylane but look for the road signs close to the Lisboa hotel

The first time we bought a box of 6 egg custards and they were so lovely we returned the next day for some more and two of their filled rolls which were heavenly, best food in Macau for westerners.

I hopped on the ferry to Macau from Hong Kong during my first visit to Hong Kong (and Macau too). This was the only places on my to-visit list that I managed to go due to the heavy downpour whilst there. Personally, this place was hard to find if you're in Macau for the first time and not asking anyone.... More

The cafe is advertised in guide books and online as belonging to Lord Stow's former wife and so we went with no expectations (we are wary of places that rely on name association to drum up publicity). Also, since Lord Stow's name has been used liberally to advertise Margaret's Cafe, I'm going to to compare the egg tarts from both... More

The best egg tart on the planet! There is very little to do in Macau. There is gambling, and there is gambling. Senate Square has a hint of what this once sleepy Portuguese colony was like... lovely architecture now ruined by gold and glass fronted casinos. Buy then there is milk pudding (with red beans for flavor) and egg tarts.... More
