This place is awesome, they had so many flavors, it was the best gelato in Laguna. It also was priced a little cheaper and you get more for the size. The kids loved the birthday cake gelato, you dont see that often. They also had several flavors aimed at adults like balsamic strawberry and a whiskey flavor.

A great variety of flavors and not badly priced. It is conveniently located. There are places to sit inside, if you wish.

On Broadway up about a block from PCH. Lots of interesting flavors. The server was very accommodating and split flavors for us to share. Also gave sample tastes so we could decide what we wanted. Tables and chairs inside.

I'm Italian (born and raised) and very picky about ice cream. This shop has probably the best ice cream I had in the US. Completely worth it, too bad I don't live close or it would be my go-to spot.

I have sampled Gelato across the U.S. and this place, by far, is the Best. They have a large variety, allow you to sample, and are generous with their serving proportions. Every flavor they offer is accurate to it's name and absolutely delicious! Whenever my wife and I visit Laguna beach we always stop in for a treat. If you... More

While wandering Laguna Beach, we came upon dolce. It was delicious! I would definitely recommend the Mexican chocolate and Oregon berry. Wonderful way to enjoy the ocean view.

Though this gelato is more expensive than others in Laguna Beach, it was well worth the cost (about $4.50 for kids size). This was one of the best gelatos I have ever tasted. The banana creme and the coconut were both amazing. I would go back everyday if I could!

After visiting the Laguna Art Festival we needed to cool off with gelato. On our way to the free shuttle bus we found Dolce! The place was busy, a good sign. We tasted a few and made our selections. Truth be told...they were all very good and I suggest enjoying them your selves...

This Gelato shop offers great tasting gelatos with fresh-made waffle cones. The varieties of flavors is extensive. Good spot to get your gelato fix.
