In the warmer months, this teeny Laguna Beach gelato shop is consistently surrounded by lines that stretch well beyond its adorable alleyway storefront. 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 the freshest ingredients and time-honored Sicilian recipes. The elaborate gelato cakes make great hostess gifts (but secure yours in advance, as they tend to sell out).
