Nothing special as far a location goes. Just a few tables and chairs. Rather plain. But, the gelato is very good. The "kids" size is enough for any adult! A lot of good flavors. Clean too.

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!!

Stopped in here after dining with friends. Huge waffle cones with many options of Gelato to fill them. You can combine gelato flavors if you would wish. Really good!

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
