This place is a sweet tooth's heaven!! Beautifully made cakes, pastries and desserts which are obviously created with love and fantastic attention to detail. You cannot visit Hobart without going to Sweet Envy...you will regret it if you don't go! Staff are lovely and everything is made in house by the owners.

This is a great little café on the North Hobart strip with really nice pastries - a place to go for that extra indulgence after seeing a film.

A great little cafe to pop into. Beautiful cakes, lovely staff and really nice freshly squeezed juices. Sampled the lemon meringue and the uber pie last visit together with a blood orange juice. Simply delicious! Well worth the visit if you are in the area.

This little café in New Town, Hobart, is certainly well named with great coffee and a fabulous range of cakes and sweeties, all of which almost look too good to eat. We had an afternoon tea which must be the envy of others who were not able to take advantage of this sweet feast. The size of the portions is... More

We have had lunch, morning coffee and afternoon tea here, so I am at a loss to know why I have not been urging others to visit. There is certainly no shortage of beautifully presented sweet delights, plus ice cream, plus very nice pies if lunch is your choice. Seating is limited, although you can sit outside, so there should... More

Decent hot drinks but macarons not enjoyable, and not actually macarons. Just coloured meringues with icing in the middle unfortunately. Crunchy and sugary ick! Cupcakes were very dry, definitely not made today.

Cute, quaint little dessert stop. I've only tried the peanut butter cupcake because it's so good I can't order anything else! Good coffee too and good customer service. They also will do cakes for special events if you order them. Gluten and dairy free meringues are also available.

Such a lovely little shop. The selection is outstanding. I've been a few times now and just needed to say how lovely the sweets have been each time
