We have had gelato around the world and this is as good as it gets. They have an amazing Website with constantly updated pictures of their ongoing new creations. The actual product in person exceeds expectations...every time. Do not miss Dolce Gelato whenever in Laguna

If you're heading to Main Beach and walking Laguna like a tourist, you MUST have gelato on a sunny day! This is the place - and the "kids" size will satisfy! Rotating flavors - yummy!

Dolce gelato is very good. Lots of great flavor choices and good sized servings. Lots of seating and so close to the beach. Great for a sunset walk.

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.
