Be aware of the Eggtart Nazi...

The place is at a small alleyway near the Grand Lisboa, it's a smallish unassuming restaurant ehise main goal is to give you the tarts as quickly as possible and take your cash also as quickly as possible. The staff are quite a bunch. You have Ms. EGg tart Nazi who has this shrill condescending... read more

One of the best portugese egg tarts in macau. Location is more convenient then lord stow. Selection of breads and sandwich are good. Can be very crowded but limited sitting area.

I visited this shop twice. The taste is very good, but it is too crowded. We had to wait for egg tarts around 30 minutes.

Long queue. Flooded by tourist. Average and expensive egg tart, too sweet to my flavour. IMO, hong kong one was far better than this.

Learned about this place by searching the internet for the best egg tart in the whole of Macau. The place pops up every time so we decided to give it a try. I read in some blogs that the place opens at 630am, however when we went there there was a note posted that it opens at 8:30am. We came... More

I personally think that Margaret has THE BEST egg tarts in Macau. There is always a massive line up but they are worth the wait. If you head into the little shop and get a freshly made sandwich, it will get you in there faster to get at the yummy tarts

You cannot visit Macau without visiting Margaret's Cafe. In addition to their egg tarts, they sell other pastries, cakes, and drinks. Don't let the long line fool you, it goes by pretty quickly and is definitely worth the wait.

Egg tarts here, not much of a big difference with that of Lord Stow's. If you guys know their history, owner of Margaret's is the divorced wife of the owner of Lord Stow. So their offering pretty much the same food stuff.

I got information that the cafe will be opened at 8 am, but actually it was opened at 8.30. The cafe is also close on Wednesday The egg tart is ok, but I prefer Lord Stow's much better. The location of Lord Stow's bakery at the Venetian is also much more comfortable.

We arrived just as the Portuguese egg tarts came out of the oven. As a friend suggested, each of us ordered two -- one to eat as quickly as possible to satisfy the appetite which was whetted by the aroma of the freshly baked egg tarts and the other to eat as slowly as possible to savor each bite.
