I don't usually go for white cake, but the famous cupcake was hands down the best white cupcake I've ever had. The guy that helped me was so friendly and helpful, although it's hard to pick a flavor! If I would have been able to take them home I would have! Definitely worth the stop for a treat!

Dropped in to this place this afternoon to be (not so) greeted by a very unfriendly man behind the counter. Felt like we were disturbing him. Despite the "cold" welcome we tried two of the cupcakes....the mabel original and the pecan and they were superb. Too bad the guy was a royal you know what.

We were introduced to Mabel's Cupcake Emporium during a food tour (see review of Savannah Taste Experience) on a recent trip to Savannah and fell in love with their vanilla cupcakes. I have to confess that I have pretty high cupcake standards, but Mabel's famous vanilla cupcakes were the BEST. The cupcakes had a wonderfully textured light cake with good... More

Had a birthday cake cupcake here while on a food tour and it was amazing! Wanted to go back, but they close early on Sundays and were not open before we had to leave on Monday. Will definitely go back on my next trip!

Soft, moist cupcakes with tasty frosting! The Emporium built a reputation for outstanding cupcakes by utilizing Mabel's (the family matriarch) recipes. Dee, the founder, offers a delicious array of flavors: Key Lime, Red Velvet, and Chocolate-Chocolate! The family birthday cake inspired their signature flavor,the "Famous Mabel"--Butter Cream frosting on yellow birthday cake. It honestly acquired all the rave reviews! To... More

Walked by and had to go in and check things out. I decided to try a cupcake and it was delicious. They said they can not make peach ones for too hard to cook with peaches. It was so good I stopped here twice!

Stopped here while on vacation because the store looked like an inviting place for a great cupcake. I am a huge fan of red velvet, so of course that is what I went for. The cupcake was average, nothing really to write home about, and it wasn't all that big. Definitely not worth the $3+.

Visited as part of a culinary tour. Each person in our tour group was given a full-sized red Velvet Cupcake, which was very generous. I was so excited to taste it, it looked beautiful! However, I was not impressed with the taste or texture of the cupcake. Cream cheese icing really had no taste and the icing to cake proportion... More
