Very Sweet Cupcakes

The cupcakes revery sweet, moist, and delicious. We tried the Mabel, Butter Pecan and Coconut cupcakes and by far the Mabel was the best. Didn't really enjoy the Coconut flavor. Each cupcake reasonably priced at $2.99. The staff was very friendly.

The shop owner was such a helpful & friendly guy. He made my coffee just the way I like it and even had skim milk for it!!! Didn't get any cupcakes but they sure did look good!

As a cupcake lover, I don't shy away from sweet treats, and I love buttercream frosting, but this was just cloyingly sweet. The cake was very moist though.

My husband and I walked past the Cupcake Emporium on our way to dinner one night while visiting Savannah. We intentionally skipped out on dessert at the restaurant so that we could stop here on the way back to our B&B after dinner. It's a very simple place, with a counter displaying all of the goodies, some drinks, and a... More

If you you are in need of sweets real quick n you are in the area this place is perfect. I would not go out of my way to get here. The foods requires a lil prep but the wait isn't bad. The owner however is quite charming n comfortable with conversation tat compensates a bit for average food.

I stopped here for coffee with my husband mid morning. It seemed to early to have a cupcake so we split a Pastelito after inquiring what it was. It was a Cuban pastry filled with cream cheese & guava. The server recommended having it warmed up. We're very glad we did. It was absolutely delicious - very flaky pastry with... More

Selection is very limited, at best. Small, dry cupcakes. Frosting tasted like shortening with a bit of powdered sugar in it; grainy and greasy. Nasty, and highly disappointing. Don't waste your money or your calories!
