A baked bear is not how Smokey copes with the stress of preventing forest fires; it's a made-to-order ice cream sandwich shop in Pacific Beach where you can design your own dessert combo like, for example, this mint chocolate chip nestled between warm, fresh-made waffles, making it perfectly acceptable breakfast food.
Serving up waffle ice cream sandwiches, milkshakes, and other its-summer-somewhere treats, The Baked Bear is a Pacific Beach eatery (and mobile food cart!). Lucky for us, it's open late-- 'til 2am Thursday through Saturday. Don't leave without trying its signature menu item: an ice cream-filled donut. Pick whatever ice cream you want and they will cram it into a donut, then stick the whole thing in a hot press so you get a warm donut pocket full of cold, creamy ice cream.
