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!

They have lots of flavors of gelato. They also have some inventive one like chili and mango. Suicide is good and the portions are generous. Fresh some on a hot day at the beach

Dolce Gelato has a variety of interesting flavours that are hand crafted. Some very unique uses of spices and other ingredients. We had to return a few times over our stay in Laguna to try out some of the one-of-a-kind gelato. Wonderful service as well.

They captivate you immediately when you see the different flavors that are so unique in their look. There's so many choices that you feel almost overwhelmed. Nevertheless, I suggest trying out the flavors that you normally aren't used to seeing, as this will give you...More

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.
