We visited at lunchtime, two of us had recently had a large brunch but a friend was really hungry and went for the soup and the speed trap sandwich. It looked great and she went through it like a zombie going at a brain sandwich....More

Unfortunately, the Avocado Toast was not available, so I tried "The Breakfast" selection. Cheesey Potato wedge, toasted in-house baked bread, eggs and the Best Bacon. Noisy busy friendly atmosphere, a little slow with the coffee. A good place

The people here are warm, friendly and do an excellent job. We had cranberry scones and coffee, both very good. When in Palmer Lake we will always stop here. Thanks, Dan and Phyllis Denver, CO

Whilst visiting Palmer Lake, we stopped into the Speedtrap Bistro for a quick lunch. Very eclectic atmosphere. We had the crepes (brat & onions) and they were quite tasty. Service could use a little improvement - not very friendly and welcoming.
