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!

Stopped in here on a morning drive along the front range - what a great find! Very creative menu with fresh ingredients. The breakfast pizza was fantastic - we tried a few different menu items and all were excellent. On top of the great food, their coffee is outstanding and the service is friendly and attentive. All in all a... More

Fantastic food and awesome service! I was quite surprised because it looks like nothing from the outside but when you go in, it's nice and homey. There is also excellent live music on some nights. Don't miss this place if you're anywhere near the area.

Crowded by bicyclers and families on Saturday. Food was really good, but it was loud inside from the close proximity of all the tables and the kids. The service was by high school girls and was haphazard.

I have been to the speedtrap for dinner and loved it (see previous review). Within the last month I've been there twice for breakfast/lunch on the weekend. The problem: I have to go every weekend now it's that addictive! The crepes are to die for! The strawberry spinich salad is devine! the handmade margarita with fresh-squeezed juice was awesome! In...
