Light my fire: chocolate, cinnamon and habanero. Salted maple caramel. So good, even together. Stop in to cool off after a day in Laguna.

The gelato was worth the wait! The line snaked out the door when we arrived but the gelato made up for any wait you might encounter. A little pricey for sure but when you taste it you won't mind.

Outstanding Gelato. A few blocks up from the beach and was recommended by locals. Great variety, great quality, priced reasonably, not too expensive. Will definitely go back.

Great portions with many selections; this is a sweet stop for after dinner or just a midday treat. The gelato is rich and served in big portions.

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.
