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

After lunch we needed dessert of course and another of the heritages from Portugal seems to be Pastel de nata – the tasty egg tart. We walked over to Margaret's Cafe e Nata and when we came over there we saw a long line of people. We tried to figure out where the line started but soon one of the... More

Visited Margaret's cafe in the afternoon. The queue was very long and we waited about 30 to 40 minutes before we got to buy the tart. Tips: You need to pay at the cashier before line up. The queue is for customers who had paid and wait for collection. Taste: Average taste. Overrated by most bloggers. The tart pastry shell... More

Had this in my recent trip to Macau and this place were brought and recommended to me by my relatives staying there. Texture of the egg pastries were great and fluffy with it still warm, and of course, ever fresh as from the oven. Taste of the great rich buttery flavour burst from the bite that sink into the tart.... More

Everyone there is really rude.They probably don't need money anymore so they give this bad service. The old lady (cashier) is the worst. After paying, i only moved one step to the right (so I was still in front of the cashier machine) but the old lady didn't want to move her hand to give back the change and asked... More
