Where to find waffles with ice cream?

Does anybody sell waffles with ice cream any more? I'm not talking about waffle cones. I mean a real waffle made in an actual waffle iron. Two waffle squares with a slab of ice cream in the middle. I've read that before cones took over, this was how people in some parts of the country took ice cream to go. There used to be a stand at Coney Island and one on the LIRR level at Penn Station that sold them. They made the waffles right there. The still warm waffle caused the ice cream to melt a bit into the waffle. Hot and cold. Creamy and crunchy. Both places are gone now.
Does anybody know any places that still sell real (made on the spot) waffles with ice cream?
What made me think of this is an article in the Huffington Post that Carl Jr's is testing an "ice cream hamburger" - a slab of chocolate ice cream between two sugar cookies, made to look like a hamburger. Sounds way too icky sweet (the reviewer tried it and agreed) but waffles and ice cream seemed to have a really good balance of tastes and textures. If I could only find them again.
