Fun little spot

Pretty busy with a fast moving line. We got ours to go and they were obviously pretty melty when we got to them. Still delicious!

If you love cookies, brownies and ice cream (I mean, who doesn't?), then you will love The Baked Bear! It's such a cool concept where you get to create your own ice cream cookie sandwich. Its fun, interactive, tasty and the perfect way to cool down from a day at the beach. Definitely worth a visit!

You must stop here and have an ice cream sandwich! It is like heaven in your mouth! Snickerdoodles with cookies and cream ice cream was my favorite combo but they have so many more!!! It was so busy but they got to us fast and were polite but rushed, which was fine because the dessert was amazing!!!!

This is a great place for ice cream, a must stop in mission beach. Very original, great California experience. They're pretty large, you may want to share. Also very messy.

With a variety of combinations and genuinely friendly service this quick dessert spot became one of my favorite places to eat in San Diego! Definitely have to give it a try if you are in the Pacific Beach area! Can't go wrong with any of the combinations of sweets available

Chocolate brownie topped with a red velvet cookie.....coffee ice cream in the middle. No line in January. The perfect afternoon pick-me-up after your day at PV or your day of shopping!

This place is amazing. If you are visiting San deigo you must try this for desert. The cookie ice cream is amazing and often times the line is out of the door to get your hands on one of these things.

My son picked out this place to get ice cream as we drove down to San Diego- what a find! each ice cream sandwich is handmade and there are lots of options for different types of cookies and toppings. You can also have your sandwich "hot pressed" which gives the cookies even more flavor and a great texture to the... More
