So many choices...ALl delicious! How many tastings can I have? Pick up to 4 flavors per cup... This time I had chocolate hazelnut, pistachio, and peanut butter. Don't ask me which was my favorite... I can't pick!

The Gelato is really great. Definitely make the trip to this little cozy place to indulge in real taste of paradise. Gelato is freshly made daily, you can taste the freshness. The staff are very helpful and friendly like most people in California.

Fine gelatos, so many choices, this is a great place to bring your sweetheart on a date, or someone you enjoy being with. Whomever you bring, this will be your treat to be remembered. Sit outside and slowly savor the wonderful iced cream, or stroll Laguna Village or Main Beach boardwalk, and enjoy yourself. Be transported by this rich treat!

The waiter at the Beachcomber told us about this hidden gem. Its tucked back a little off the main street, but its a local favorite. We know why, the flavors are extensive and very flavorful. It took us a while to figure out what to order and they offered up samples for us. Very tasty!

Every time we visit Laguna Beach we have to stop here to get gelato. It's very good, can be busy on weekend especially during the summer however they get you in and out never more than a few minutes wait. Employees are always courteous.

Those who are handling the cash should use gloves if they have their hands on the food. That is just poor training and sends a bad message to an... More

My mouth is watering just thinking about the experience of their Gelato. The freshness and scent of waffle cones fills the narrow strip to this heavenly location. While in town break your diet and treat yourself. The list of many flavors will catch you by surprise. The line up is worth it.
