We stumbled upon this place and had to go in just to admire the detail on each of the cakes. After that I was hooked and ordered a few. There were so many exciting flavours and designs I am sad I couldn't have managed more. When we went to leave I noticed they did a cake challenge, if I had... More

Go to sweet envy with as much anticipation as you would a fine international confection and bakery- this is a must! Buy as many treats as you can and take them back to your hotel - or eat as many as you can there with their lovely coffee - have their finger buns, sausage rolls, or a dexter! Take some... More

My wife had the Mango Pamplemousse on a tartlet with... More

Do I need to say anymore!?! Their liquid caramel chocolate treats are devine. An explosion of salty sweetness the liquid caramel balls have captured mine and many of my girlfriends hearts. Each time I visit Tasmania make a special effort to drop in (on a weekday or Sat, they are closed on Sundays). Sometimes it's for a taste of Sweet... More

I've tried to many times to enjoy myself at this highly touted cafe! We didn't mind sitting outside in the rain and the cold because the internal seating is inadequately disposed, but when we had finished our coffee and the ordered and paid for cakes did not arrive I gave up! I counted 10 customers in all and the staff... More

I've been here a few times recently for take away cupcakes (always delicious, i recommend the red velvet and the chocolate peanut butter especially!) but have also dined in once. Mother brought me in during school as an after exam treat. Staff were incredibly friendly asking about school etc as I was in uniform. Offered free tasting of their made... More

mmmmmmm the salted caramel bites and roasted walnuts on creamy vanilla ice-cream are a taste buds heaven. The macaroons were mouth watering.

A lovely selection of cakes and cupcakes. Some unusual variety, I haven't seen in Hobart before. It reminds me of a small cake shop in France. Decor is between french provincial and vintage Not too many seating available. I was attracted by a street sign, inviting me to come in, so I did. I had a choc and orange cup... More
