This teeny Laguna Beach gelato shop is consistently marked by a line that stretch well beyond its adorable alleyway storefront—no matter the time of day. The good news? It’s worth the wait: their gelato, which comes in all the traditional Italian flavors plus dozens of fan favorites like cookies-and-cream and salted caramel, is made onsite, in small batches, using time-honored Sicilian recipes. The elaborate gelato cakes make great hostess gifts (but secure yours in advance, as they tend to sell out). There are also locations in Newport Beach and San Diego.
