A small suburban neighborhood in San Diego County, Sabre Springs sits just east of Interstate 15 straddling Poway Road. A mostly residential area, Sabre Springs is a tight-knit community where little league games and backyard barbecues occur regularly. The population tends to be well-educated and gainfully employed. With its easy freeway access, residents enjoy an easy commute to nearby places such as Riverside and Orange County.

With Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve a few miles to the west and downtown San Diego less than 30 minutes away, the natural beauty and close proximity to all the comforts of city life continue to bring people to this still-budding community.

Restaurants

Several mainstay fast food and chain restaurants are concentrated along Scripps Poway Parkway, which runs east/west just south of the main residential area. Since Sabre Springs is such a small community, you will have to venture into surrounding neighborhoods to get to some of the great nearby eateries and to experience a bit more of a nightlife.

Visit Nutmeg Bakery and Café on any given morning for a hip environment where you can get goodies made using sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients. Everything here is freshly made, and if you can catch one of the pastries fresh from the oven you won’t soon forget about it. The scones are especially amazing. If you come for breakfast, try the incomparable French Toast. Plus, you can get a good latte that makes Nutmeg a local gem all by itself for just a few bucks.

A few minutes to the east in Poway, the Old West-themed Hamburger Factory serves award-winning burgers — over a dozen of them — along with more greasy spoon gourmet. The Kobe Burger is especially tasty and goes perfectly with the thick milkshakes. After you eat, walk off a few calories exploring Old Poway Park.

When it comes to nightlife, be sure to venture to the southern edge of Sabre Springs and pay a visit to Sanctuary Lounge, a place that seems like it would be just as at home downtown as it is on these suburban streets. A large selection of premium beer and wine along with a rich decor lends an executive feeling to the atmosphere. An outdoor humidor provides a place to enjoy one of the lounge’s many fine cigars. If you’re hungry, this establishment will have food brought in from nearby restaurants.

History

Native tribes once roamed the lands that are now part of Sabre Springs, as evidenced by nearby archaeological sites. Used predominantly as cattle ranching lands throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, much of what is now Sabre Springs eventually came under the ownership of the Chadwick family — the same Chadwick family famous swimmer Florence Chadwick came from.

Wavelines brings the surf shop vibe inland, and locals flock to this home-grown favorite. Hidden away in a strip mall along Carmel Mountain Road, locals come here to get coastal flavor in a suburban setting. Wavelines has good prices on top-end surf, skate and snowboard gear. They also sell locally made souvenirs that you won’t see in the more tourist-oriented shops closer to the beaches.

For other interesting gift ideas, talk to the friendly people at Family Plaques & More. Another family-owned local business, Family Plaques creates customized plaques and gifts, so you can have a personalized sign or plaque made for your home or business, or commission one as a very cool souvenir, wedding, housewarming or thank you gift. The store usually has some kind of sale going on, so be sure to ask to see if you can save yourself a few bucks.
