Homemade with many unique flavors. Generous portions. My family loved it. Right in downtown Laguna. A must after dinner or a day at the beach.

Spontaneously decided to try 'Dolce Gelato' as I pased the small yet inviting shop while strolling around Laguna Beach. Boy! am I glad I did!

What can be better than having a yummy gelato and any kind you like after a beach day? And the staff are nice and won't get tired of giving you samples! My favorite is pistachio. Parking is street but if don't find a close by one, no worries, the street worth walking and checking out the art galleries etc.

Great flavors and selection. There is always a line, so you know it is a great place. Some times the line is short, but moves quickly.
