Chef Bear resides in a house located in the southeastern corner of Animal Village. She can be found cooking and talking about opening a branch in Mabe Village. She is very amiable to Link and offers him advice on how he can get past the Walrus that blocks Yarna Desert. She is very fond of Marin, and like other residents she refers to her as "Little Marin".
She is also essential for completing the Trading Quest, as she has run out of ingredients. She asks Link to give her the Honeycomb he obtained from Tarin. In exchange, she gives Link a Pineapple. She believes Honeycombs to be a rare delicacy.
- Chef Bear is one of the few residents of Animal Village that does not leave her home when Marin visits.

- "ONE GOOD TURN DESERVES
One good turn deserves another, and it is particularly true in Animal Village. For instance, Chef Bear is concocting a delicacy that requires honey, but she has none. If only you could find, say, a beehive, you might be able to help. As a reward, she might give you a pineapple--just the sort of thing to save a starving mountaineer who in turn might happen to have a blossom that a letter-writing goat might need. It's funny how one thing leads to another." (The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening — Nintendo Player's Guide by Nintendo of America Inc. pg. 47)
