And by cakes I mean the servings in store, they are generally all amazing. The cakes made to order are pretty expensive and don't meet the standard of what you can sit down to in the shop. The place to go for a sit down dessert, absolutely decadent and so tasty and different ice cream flavours as well.

We stopped in here for a quick lunch after hearing good reviews. We thought that with 55 minutes up our sleeves, we should be able to enjoy a pie each and a dessert, without any issue. The pies we ordered were cold, so we understood that they needed to be heated, but 40 minutes later we were still waiting and... More

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

We had just had a disappointing and overpriced "snack" further down Elizabeth street, so decided to make up for it by treating ourselves to a long overdue visit to this little shop with huge experience and massive value for money.Sweet Envy by name and i am sure by reputation too. My wife had the Mango Pamplemousse on a tartlet with... More

What an incredible range of unique and well made sweet cakes and treats, and the hot cross buns were fantastic.

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
