Friendly service and fresh food. Skip the queue and order a sandwich from inside the store, grab a Portuguese tart the way to pay.

It's a must visit cafe for me. The milk tea is wonderful but the egg tarts are just heavenly. One must never leave Macau without tasting these egg tarts. It is just so delicious and you just yearn to have more. It's a must try!

I knew that this is one of the most must-eat restaurants in Macau and I was really looking forward to it. By the first day I visited, I forgot they were closed every Wednesdays. I went there again on the next day. I did avoid queuing by going there around 10:00hrs. Still many queues. The shop was quite small and... More

Premise: I LOVE egg tarts, and during my life I have eaten LOTS of 'em. Needless to say, trying Margaret's was of course on top of my priority list. The queue was long, but the serving speed was astonishing and I was done in less than ten minutes. Service not so friendly, but you can't expect much, since It's more... More

A visit to Macau isn't complete without tasting their Portugese Egg Tart! Margaret's egg tart is crispy and flaky on the outside and soft on the inside. It's even better when served warm! Previous reviewer were saying that queue was long but we were lucky to went there on a mid morning with literally no queue! It's a take-away style... More

The egg tarts were great. They were freshly baked and still tasted great after it cooled down. However you need to spare some time for the queuing and check the shop opening days.

Find the egg tarts standard fare compared to others that I find in other countries, not sure what the hype is about.

First thing first, I honestly like Lord Stow's Bakery tarts better but theirs are still good and worth going! Last time I went in a Sat afternoon and the estimated queuing time was like 2 hours so I gave up. This time I went in a Mon afternoon and no queue at all!!! And I really don't like their outdoor...

We arrive Macao during raining season (September)! And trust me raining doesn't make the queue shorter when purchase fresh bake Portuguese tart! But it's worth it, taste not so sweet compare the one I had in Ruin St. Paul's. But it's taste more Milky Way. If u love milk u will love this. We brought a Box of 6 (MOP55... More
