Sweet Envy in North Hobart is best known for it's beautiful cakes made on the premises. While they are not the cheapest, they look classy, taste great and are good value (cupcakes about $3.50, others $4-$6 approx) given the generous size, presentation and work involved.
We've had slices /cakes on several occasions in the past, and always enjoyed them.
However Sweet Envy also makes great coffee, and the pies and pastries are fantastic (divine pastry and interesting flavours such as lamb, tongue and cheek, pork and fennel etc) with a little pot of home made tomato salsa on the side. Same price as Banjos and other similar bakeries, but infinitely better quality.
Only negatives: Service was friendly and efficient but no water available for table and fairly limited seating -a couple of tables seating x4-5 each, and a bench seat and table outside.
PS check out the wedding cakes and try the roast parsnip icecream...wow!
Open Tuesday - Friday 8:30am till 6pm,
