Wow. Just wow. All homemade gelato — exquisite flavors: fruits, chocolates, and some incredible unusual ones. I had a most outstanding White chocolate with black pepper, and a Ferrero Rocher gelato. A wonderful gentleman makes them all. Truly worth going to!!

This is another 'must visit' place when in Laguna Beach! The line can get long even though they have 3-5 people helping and it's always delicious. Great place to grab a cup or cone and head to the beach and watch the sunset ;-)) I...More

They have lots of flavors of gelato. They also have some inventive one like chili and mango. Suicide is good and the portions are generous. Fresh some on a hot day at the beach

Dolce Gelato is a family-owned business in Laguna Beach. We make each pan of gelato from scratch each day in our store using multiple milks and different sugars to achieve perfect balance and flavor, just like you'll find in the small shops in Italy.
