Great gelato place as always. Originally remembered going here the day after proposing to my now wife, and a few other times over the past decade. On our trip to SoCal in September, we just had to make a visit once again. The staff allow...More

Hidden little jewel. Try to avoid long lines on weekends. It’s tucked in the back away from PCH. Both the gelato and sorbet are amazing. There’s no seating area, so be prepared to walk around The Village or head over to Main Beach.

It was good but nothing amazing. Lots of flavors but the line was ridiculous for some Gelato. The gelato place down the street is just as great and not busy.

We loved our stop at this enjoyable gelato shop. We were eating dinner next door and smelled the wonderful aromas of the waffle cones cooking on the griddles. We proceeded next door after enjoying our dinner and there was quite the long line. But as...More
