Perfect little bakery

Every Hobartian should visit regularly and it should be on the list of places to try for every visitor. Whether your thing is cupcakes, pies and sausage rolls, cakes or ice-cream they have you covered. Nothing not to like!

We stopped in at Sweet Envy after a trip up Mt Wellington while on a recent visit to Hobart. As soon as we walked in I realised I was in cupcake heaven! The glass cabinet was full of delicious cupcakes and tarts etc. After a painfully hard time choosing I finally decided to have a coffee (which I really enjoyed)... More

Great little place in the hub of North Hobart. Choice of cakes make it exciting. Well worth a sweet visit.

The cake and hot drinks were lovely BUT... two employees (seemed to be management/cooks) stood in the middle of the café just centimetres from our table conducting the loudest conversation with a friend. The friend had the most loudest laugh and the conversation went on the entire duration of our visit. We (the paying customers) actually had to yell across... More

Management standing in middle of this small cafe carrying out extremely loud conversation (with the loudest laugh I have ever heard) right next to our table. Obviously had run into long list friend which was nice, but we had to yell to each other over coffee. Ended up having panadol with coffee and leaving. Great food but think about your... More

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
