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

Husband and I decided to get a sweet treat from Sweet Envy. We bought the Darth Vader Sorbet; it wasn't the nicest. Tastes more like a liqueur chocolate. (Not in picture) What is in the picture is "Dexter" which wasn't the best either. Cupcake crust was nice. Not sure if it was Rhubarb within it. A smooth chocolate centre. Topped... More

Do not visit this place if you are on a diet but only if you enjoy delectable food in a small cheerful environment! You don't have to eat the gorgeous little coloured maroons or the little cupcakes or any of the other equally delicious little cakes, you can have other healthy food as well! A great place to meet with... More

This is the most amazing cake shop we have ever visited. The items for purchase are more like works of art. The level of professionalism in making the cakes astounded me ... Its hard to make a choice as to what to buy and then the taste of the cakes are amazing.

Although this is a popular café and the sweets are very tempting but unfortunately there is very little choice of sweets for gluten intolerant people and they do not have lactose free milk for those who are lactose intolerant so unfortunately I cannot recommend this place for people with dietary needs. Although for the fortunate many with a sweet tooth,... More
