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.

I have eaten here several times, and usually with the kids. This is a nice place to grab a quick meal. I am not a big fan of fried foods or fast foods, but I do return here when we are enjoy time at some of the nearby activities, (beach, movies, children's museum).

The kIds like the fries and chicken strips, I usually get a burger. Usually we follow up with an ice cream.

Since the kid friendly restaurants are limited in the area, this is a convenient choice, but never a destination location in itself.

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 summer time place. Not year round.

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. The atmosphere was ok, but would have been better near the ocean, or with an ocean veiw. Overall it was a great place. I would consider going there if you are in the town.
