Conveniently located, Dolce Gelato is a great after dinner treat. My friend from Delaware who had the pleasure of living in Laguna Beach for business would indulge several times a week.

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.
