Tarts are nice but this review is of Margaret's as a whole so I'm given them 1 star. Got to admit with the rudeness of the staffs. I felt very threatened by the lady boss when I enquired which queue to queue at! Absolute disgusting behaviour! The bakers do make very nice tarts. If you're after a nice enjoyable trip... More

Not too sweet so it's going well with the lemonade. The tart itself is good but the stuff is a little like steamed-egg. I prefer another egg tart brand.

Good Pastéis de bata although a little more "eggy" than those in Belem. Highly recommend if you are in the area join in the Que (weekend took 10-15minutes only).

Firstly, the egg tarts thoroughly deserve its accolades and is well worth the wait (typically 30 minutes or more). The egg tarts are freshly baked and utterly delicious. However, if you are here for the service, you will be in for a disappointment. My suggestion, just order what you want and get out on the double! Margaret's is tucked away... More

Without doubt the best egg tart I have ever enjoyed. Ok, the place is not easy to find, the long queue to get in is moving fairly fast. The staff is friendly and try to serve as quickly as possible. Despite these grey spots, definitely worth the wait. Served warm, perfectly cooked, flaky pastry, flavourful. Definitely worth the trip. Forget... More

Had breakfast here after seeing the positive reviews, and had to say I was very disappointed. The egg tarts were mediocre, definitely no way as good as the ones we had at Lord Stow's. The sandwiches and apple pie were also nothing special, could have had better at any fast food restaurant. Food was also quite overpriced. A cup of... More

Among half dozen different egg tarts I've tasted, Cafe e Nata's egg tarts are simply the best! Be prepared to wait for 30-45 minutes anytime of the day because of the long queue. This was my third time to go in Macua but never had the chance to eat the tarts there since the cafe is always full. These tarts... More
