    Long ass wait because people literally walk away with dozens of everything. But the egg tart is worth it. Coconut macaroons are good too.

    7x7 recommends the Egg Tart

  • Roger M.

    Up to par with egg tarts found in HK!

    The egg tart: it's warm, it's creamy, it's crumbly, it's a dollar and sixty cents. Read more

    The egg tart was good.! It's like pudding.

  • Mike W.

    Seriously, you need to get the Egg Custard Tart. It's the best, freshest, most-savory version of this eggy little pie that I've ever had. Delicious. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Egg tarts are the absolute best in SF! Or US!

    Hedan Zeng · January 23
  • Allison Y.

    Egg tarts are obviously the best thing here but their coconut macaroons are also mind-blowingly good

    Allison Yu · January 18
  • D Thein W.

    Egg custards are the bomb

    Egg tarts are rich, creamy and indulgent—Best straight out of the oven; Still great after an hour or so commute to a party. Coconut tarts are equally delicious. You need to get 4+ items to get a box.

    Egg tarts. Hands down.

    nancy t. · October 8, 2014
  • Sarah

    The mooncakes are pretty standard—not worth waiting in line for.

    Sarah · September 15, 2014
  • Godwin S.

    The line here is ridiculous! Almost an hour wait for egg tarts.

    Godwin Saetia · August 31, 2014

    Fresh pastries. Quaint.

    The best place to get a 'Dan Tat'. The shell is so flaky & tender, and the egg custard filling is so smooth & silky. They are always fresh from the oven because they sell so quickly. Read more

    Best egg tarts in the city. Long lines. Always check "" to make sure you won't be disappointed when you get there.

    Egg custard is the best anywhere hands down!!! Their egg is hot and super creamy and almost liquidy. So warm and excellent. Not too sweet, and super large!!!

    Rosalind Peppy · March 28, 2014
  • Christiana B.

    Service was so nice; Loved everything here. Egg tarts were delicious!

    Christiana Bau · March 26, 2014
  • Lingy M.

    I was skeptical about how good people say the egg tart was , I mean I've had my fair share of egg tarts in my life times, and the ones here didn't disappoint me ! Go for the egg tarts!!!

    Great egg custard.

  • Frank C.

    One of the most overrated places I've tried in SF so far. If this is the best Chinese bakery in the US, I didn't realize how good I had it in Canada.

    Frank Caron · September 8, 2013
  • Holly S.

    Don't miss the fortune cookie bakery on Ross Alley - no lines

    Holly Shollenberger Whell · August 31, 2013
  • Neil M.

    Call before you come. They're often closed, on vacation.

    Neil Mansilla · August 10, 2013
  • Kelly R.

    Worth the hype! Hot, fresh egg tarts.

    Kelly Ren · July 22, 2013
  • Terrance K.

    I'd recommend you get an egg tart and then a sesame ball for some variety.

    Terrance Kwok · July 21, 2013
  • Andrew L.

    Egg custard tarts that are almost as good as the ones in Hong Kong. Short of hopping a flight there, this is the place to get them.

    Andrew Lam · July 15, 2013
  • Michael C.

    Should have bought more than one egg tart.

    Michael Chen · July 9, 2013

    The custard tarts are famous, and deservedly so. Don't miss the red bean cake, coconut tarts and melon cakes.

    Suraj Acharya · June 16, 2013
  • Janet T.

    Wasn't the best egg custard I've had. Not worth the long wait.

    Janet Tom · June 15, 2013
  • Giovanni's Old World New York Pizzeria

    Really good egg custard.

  • Daniel L

    If you don't know what an egg custard tart is, join the line and know its worth the wait. Unless you don't like eggs ...

    Daniel L · June 8, 2013
  • Angela W.

    Cash only. No photos! Seriously. So worth it. Buy extra egg tarts for later.

    Angela W. · June 8, 2013

  • Courtney S.

    The place to go for egg custard tarts... went on Christmas day and the line was out the door to the next storefront. When they say "The Best in Town", they mean it.
