Took a huge bag full of goodies with us. My favorite was the homemade cookies. A pastry the looked like a baklava was also very good.

Just a coffee and some sinful chocolate, Great variety of sweet temptations. The dark chocolate and licorice or almonds is great.

I had a pie and then proceeded to check out the sweets cabinet. It was hard to choose! I ended up going with the recommendation by staff. Overall,... More

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.

Thank sabinoz
