Their eggtarts are delicious, in fact my wife prefer their eggtarts over Lord Stows, but I beg to differ. Their stores are closed on Wednesdays, when they are open, expect a long queue outside of their store. Their sandwiches were huge, but was nothing special. They also served pizza bread which was ok, not the taste that would make you... More

Father in law offered to take us for a tour of old Macau. When the word egg tarts came up, he insisted we made a direct line to Margaret's. Must admit a little backstreet which looked like an alley way location was not the most promising, nor was the well used if somewhat dirty bench seating (if you're expecting silver... More

Referred by a friend this little bakery was well worth wandering the old Portuguese cobbles stones streets for. Quaint little shop at the end of a street, it's not that far to walk from the famous Santo Anonio gate. Best egg tarts! Definitely buy two boxes as you'll be wanting more later! Worth finding this place if you have time!

Felt overrated and service was close to none. Food think can get much better at local food stalls where price is probably going to be cheaper then normal.

Margaret's does the best egg tarts in Macau. There is always a long queue but it moves very quickly. If you are lucky Margaret may be in the café and you can meet her !

Margaret's Cafe e Nata is famous among the locals! To be honest, its not worth the wait... The cashier lady was pretty rude.. I tried their famous egg tart and thought it was too rich for my tastebuds.. Honestly, I would recommend going to Lord Stow instead. The egg tarts at Lord Stow are sooo much tastier. But to each...

Withing walking distance from Lisboa hotel. Its located somewhere between the lisboa hotel and senado square. Many small restaurants around the cafe. As for the taste, its yummy, personally better than koi kei cafe and lord stow. Service is fast and unfriendly though.
