I have to confess, my favorite thing about the state of Connecticut is Friendly's Ice Cream Parlors. However, I've recently discovered that you don't need to go to CT for a good Friendly's experience. In fact, when we recently moved, I've found a good Friendly's right in my own town.
The Friendly's on Main street is clean and efficient. We've been twice in as many weeks. The first time, I'd had a really rough day. We decided to indulge in both a meal and ice cream. Our server was very friendly and willing to make suggestions on the specials. I selected one of the supermelts that came with a free ice cream at the end. My husband got the "clam boat." Both came out promptly and they were just perfect -- hot and delicious. When it came time to choose our ice cream, we wanted a substition for the typical sundae offering. Our server didn't charge any extra for subbing the "special" thing we wanted. It was great! The second time, we just did counter ice cream service- it was also a great experience. Efficient and tasty.
