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.

One of the last places we have tried in Palmer Lake. By far one of the best places we have been to for breakfast. Large portions, fresh and served hot. Great little place with a great hometown vibe.

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...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...More
