Stumbled onto this one recently just because we wanted to warm up after a hike nearby. Ended up spending over an hour as we enjoyed our coffees/lattes, perfect ham & Swiss crepes, and conversation with the baristas and regulars. Now we keep making the drive to hikes in Palmer Lake, Spruce Mt, and Greenland just so we have an excuse... More

Took two friends to check out this restaurant for lunch; picky eaters they are. We all had different quiches all of which were excellent. The Speedtrap salad that came with the quiche was outstanding. It didn't even need dressing as it was loaded with spring mix greens, cranberries, walnuts, bacon, tomatoes, croutons, and other goodies. Everyone was impressed with their... More

I have actually been twice. Once to meet a friend for lunch and once to get a latte. The first time I was there for lunch. The restaurant is quaint, but a bit "tight" for seating. While waiting for my friend I ended up switching tables to get away from the draft from the door, the waitress gave me an... More

If you don't mind a crowded environment with small tables and a bit of a wait for your food, you will be rewarded with an excellent breakfast/brunch! They have the best eggs benedict on crepes! Don't miss it!

We love grabbing breakfast or lunch at the Speed Trap. Their food is always fresh, tasty and never lets you down. The atmosphere is fun - definitely not fancy. Not to be missed.

Love the breakfast/lunch. It's a great spot to sit outside, and enjoy the day. I get the breakfast, and my husband, has probably tired most everything on the menu. He's into variety and they have it.

Went to the Speedtrap yesterday for a lunch with my wife. We wanted something different from the normal sandwich and we found it. Both of us had crepes and they were fantastic. We love this local hole in the wall where you can get such diverse meals. It is worth going out of your way to try the Speedtrap! Palmer... More

The Speedtrap is a great little coffee shop and bistro. Well worth a visit. Varied, great menu, friendly staff. It is small but 'happening'. Inside and outside seating. Great desserts and chai tea. A place with character. Cocktails and Martinis.

Palmer Lake, right outside of Colorado Springs, is a beautiful very small town that is filled with some excellent restaurants and has an amazing little Bistro called Speedtrap. It is a cozy space (close quarters for sure) with about 12 small tables, a little patio out front (dog friendly and they always brings our pups water) and a beautiful wood... More

Take highway 105 down and back... The food is phenomenal! The staff was friendly and fast. Don't let the small size scare you, it's worth the wait!
