Fabulous Ice Cream

This is on Wilmington Ave one house from Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach and we have gone there everyday while at Rehoboth. The owners are great and they live in Maine except when operating this store in summer. Don't miss this!

I absolutely LOVE Royal Treat for ice cream....so much so that we sometimes go more than once a day. Well, it is vacation after all. The screened in porch, the huge inviting counter, sundaes in old fashioned glasses it just has this Old Fashioned Americana feeling that is exactly the kind of experience you should have on a summer vacation....

Great service! Breakfast cooked to perfection! Coffe cup won't run dry! Reasonably priced and just a few feet off the boardwalk and beach.

Best ice cream in Rehoboth. Great service. Too bad they don't stay open year round.

In a beach town with many overpriced ice cream stores, Royal Treat is just what the name implies. Now they don't have 100 flavors like one of the other ice cream places, but they will surely have a flavor you will like. My husband said that his Butter Pecan ice cream was the best he has ever had!

This family-owned business was a completely lucky find on our part. We were walking around looking for a place that was open for a sit-down breakfast during our mid-week stay (a little tougher than you may think it would be at 8:30am in a resort town!) and were just about to go to The Greene Turtle when we saw Royal...

To quote her"I have done this job many years...." We still enjoyed our breakfast thanks to our waitress. The hostess (who also works at Dos Locos) kept us from returning to Royal Treat this trip. We will see what happens next season. Go Enjoy - it's a good breakfast and the BEST pancakes!

This is our favorite places to go for ice cream. They have a nice size kids sundae that adults can get too. I love sitting out on the screened in front Porte and watching the parade of people. We used to go here for breakfast every weekend but then they raised the prices and we stopped going. Breakfast food is... More

I have been going to Royal Treats for the past 25 years . I look forward to going every year because it is the best Ice Cream. I would recommend the breakfast as well. The service is excellent as well as the food.
