Beautiful view of the sound, candy bars you thought were extinct, dozens of loose sweets in jars (they've even got Finnish licorice), ice cream, ices and lunch food. Well worth the trip.

We love frosty treat, our favorite icecream place! Staff is made up of young highschool/college kids who are very friendly and efficient. Many types of icecream,shakes, floats, toppings, slushies and even offers a clam shack type food side as well. Outside seating only, open seasonally. Within walking distance of town and beach.

On the way to the McCook's beach in Niantic. Close enough, so you can leave the beach for lunch and go back, within walking distance. Terrific footling hotdogs and all the regular grill type lunches including clams, all taste very good, serving sizes are normal. The ice cream is soft or hard. Good buy for the buck. This is a...

I had just went on vacation to the town of niantic, and it was a hot, humid july day, and an ice cream at frosty treat was great.

My kid's favorite ice cream place. Best soft serve in town. Kids love the blue goo twist. Right on Main Street.

other than that, the food is simple grille fare. burgers hot dogs chicken fingers and stuff. Nothing special. But it's a hot spot in the Summer for evening ice cream. Right down by Hole in the Wall is better hard packed ice cream at gumdrops and lollipops. But at night, only frosty treat is open

This is a good place to grab a bite to eat or an ice cream, nothing fancy, but pretty consistent. I enjoy it from time to time, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick snack in the niantic area.
