while visiting our daughter in california, she took me to a hidden gem in laguna beach. a tiny walkway between two buildings transformed into an enchanting lane of quaint shops and fine dining with european flair.
there is la rue du chocolat that serves one of the best handmade chocolates and the very much sought for gelato paradiso for authentic italian treat. the huge pepper tree in the middle, thus the name peppertree lane, adds to its present charm and appeal.
gelato paradiso beckoned. mother and daughter couldn’t resist. soft and smooth. wickedly decadent.
