Best Of 2013 • Indy Pick: Place to Break off the Santa Fe Trail

It's about 20-some miles from downtown Colorado Springs to Palmer Lake. Via I-25, that's about 25 minutes, plus whatever extra time it takes to maneuver the construction mess that is the highway right now. Meanwhile, on a bike, it's a leisurely and quite pleasant 2½-hour morning ride north on the Santa Fe Trail. Which means by the time you hit Palmer Lake, you'll be craving a calorie-buster. At Speed Trap, you can go sweet with the orange-infused cream cheese French toast, or savory with the smoked salmon Benedict with asparagus (and excellent cheddar potatoes). Add a mimosa, but just one. You've still gotta get back home on two wheels.— Kirsten Akens

Bites 2012

Under smart new ownership, with an expanded menu of soups, salads and the like joining house-baked muffins and baked goods, to be enjoyed with a Serranos coffee or Bristol beer. Try the oddly awesome buffalo bratwurst crêpe with caramelized onions and sharp cheddar.

Price: $
