1. The Baked Bear 4516 Mission Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109

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!).

It’s a good thing, too, because you can work up quite the appetite during those Wednesday night goldfish races, which don’t start until 10pm.
