SpeedTrap Diner Is Cleveland’s Very Own 50s-Themed Diner
There’s something magical about comfort food and an old-school attitude. Perhaps it’s the warmth that emanates from both, or maybe it’s the side serving of nostalgia that makes such an environment really memorable. Though retro environments are well sought after, there are few places near Cleveland that perfectly captures nostalgia and fun. Fortunately, locals don’t have to travel far for such an experience.
Sandusky County is home to one village that's almost too quaint for words.
Located about 90 minutes outside of Cleveland is Woodville, a quaint village that's home to less than 2,200 residents. Despite its teeny population, this community is home to more charm than it can handle.
And the community is made even more vibrant, if you can imagine it, with the addition of one retro diner that people come from all over to visit.
The word "speed trap" is rarely associated with a good time, but SpeedTrap Diner is changing everything. It's located at the center of town at 310 E Main St., Woodville, and is said to be
the diner for cool people (their slogan is actually "cool people eat here," and they're not wrong!).
Believe it or not, this delightfully quirky eatery was once something of a controversy.
The diner was named, believe it or not, as a nod to the village's reputation of being a speed trap. Over the past 15 years, its playful name and incredible menu have earned it a soft spot in the hearts of locals.
The menu at SpeedTrap Diner is full of old-school American delights, and the prices and portions of each meal have earned the restaurant a loyal fan base.
Wraps and handhelds are always a hit with diners. However, their selection of "underground sandwiches" is the true star of the show. Condiments like mac and cheese, mozzarella sticks, and even grilled spaghetti make sandwiches special, though one could easily argue that these offerings fit perfectly with the quirky milieu.
If you're not in the mood to peruse the diner's extensive burger menu, perhaps you'll appreciate some breakfast food.
Like the rest of SpeedTrap Diner's menu, their breakfast offerings include both traditional selections and creative cuisine. In the mood to indulge in Huevos Ohios or a French Toast Sammie? Then you're in the right place.
No matter what you dine on at SpeedTrap, it's generally agreed upon that every visit should conclude with a hearty serving of ice cream.
SpeedTrap Diner has become the summertime hot spot to cool down, thanks in part to their ice cream and in part to their killer retro vibe. Colorful surrounds perfectly accent flavorful comfort food, and families can't get enough of the friendly and fun vibe.
If you aren't enchanted by the decor, then this retro diner isn't for you because the quirky interior only adds to the experience.
This colorful environment is a visual treat in addition to a unique experience. There's hardly any space left on each wall, and it seems that there's something delightful waiting to entertain everywhere the eye lands.
Next time you're in the Sandusky area, remember to take a detour to the SpeedTrap Diner.
Swing by Monday through Saturday between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., or between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday.
You're sure to fall in love with this delightfully quirky destination.
