Sweet Envy – Introduction
Sweet Envy in North Hobart is where people go to buy first rate cakes, pies, sausage rolls, and various manifestations of classic patisserie.
The window display at Sweet Envy is pulling strollers up in their tracks and, once bitten, they keep coming back for more of the delicious cakes, pastries, macaroons, ‘real’ ice creams, biscuits and confectionery.
The shop was established many years ago by Teena Kearney and Alistair Wise after returning to Tasmania following stellar careers in restaurants in London and New York.
They quickly established a thriving trade both through the shop sales and also designing and executing stunning wedding and other special occasion cakes.
They have now sold the business and we will be interested to see what the new owners do and what changes they make.
The place is quite small and only seats about 8 people, but it is the takeaway trade that really thrives here.
