With a perfect short crust pastry filled with beautiful smooth vanilla custard, then topped with mandarin 'jelly' and a large triangular exotic mango mousse, we were amazed by the harmony of flavours. It was not sweet at all. Love it. The aromatic hazelnut mousse was paired with an unusual base: caramelised chewy peanut crunch. It was a lovely sweet treat.... More

If in Hobart a visit to Sweet Envy is a must. The selection of food and the flavours are incredabile. As you enter the shop it is filled with a smell that takes you back in time. My son had a salted caramel milkshake that was out of this world. There were six of us in the group and we... More

Sweet Envy is always full of mothers and children's eating at tables, enjoying unpretentious afternoon teas. An unfussy but charming quirky shop, with squeals of delight from children, the service is excellent in a very leisurely Hobart sort of way. We visit here once a year to buy a selection for high tea we take back to our apartment. After... More

I will admit to being quite a sweet tooth, so it was only natural for me to end up at Sweet Envy eventually... The decor inside is quite quaint and lovely, with an elegant 'High Tea' feel, and the layout of colourful and quirky cake in their cabinet is infuriatingly tempting - how are we ever expected to choose only...

We are regulars at Sweet Envy and have never been disappointed. The food from savoury delights to sweet treats leave you satisfied. Alistair and Teena create such beautiful flavours and textures. The icecreams are always a surprise and while sometimes hesitant because of the ingredients they are always great

The food at Sweet Envy is amazing. There is so much to choose from! I love their icecreams and their varieties of breads. As well as their cakes and their savoury goods. I would highly recommend popping in to Sweet Envy to treat yourself to something delicious. They aren't open on Sundays or Mondays which is understandable as it is... More

Perhaps our expectations of this place were too high. After a rather ordinary day at Salamanca Markets and an equally lacklustre lunch in Smolt we hoped that Sweet Envy would lift up our culinary experience in Hobart. However, sad to say that it did not meet our expectations. We ordered a crepe dessert filled with lavender creme sitting on top... More

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
