Description: Established in 1999, Grapevine Café’s original owners created a simple restaurant offering breakfast and lunch favorites from traditional Mexican and American recipes. Under new ownership since 2006, the Grapevine Café has grown considerably in concurrence with the beautiful and surrounding city of South Padre Island, Texas. In many ways, we are still that casual eatery that serves delicious, simple and affordable food. Today, our menu boasts a greater variety of choices. We have added healthier menu items that are vegetarian and gluten free. We also offer a full line of gourmet, freshly ground coffee drinks and teas from our popular espresso bar. We take great pride in serving food that is made in-house, fresh and daily from proprietary, authentic recipes.

Finally it took 35min to bring the food.We complained about the coffee and they took another 15 min to bring a hot coffee. By the time the food came... More

This was the better place for breakfast on the island. They are VERY busy. Feel like they could use an expansion or more staff or something. Staff was kind and friendly - the food was good. But they were so busy it was hard to get refills on coffee, we were crammed into a table and they had a line... More

Last stop on the island for brunch! Shrimp and grits are awesome! It was the best I had so far and we made a lot of stops for shrimp and grits. The lattes and frappes are also very very good. Biscuits are great! I stole my husbands..lol.... You get a good amount of great food for a great price. The... More

Everything that we had was delicious and the price point was perfect. The daily specials were great and the children's pancakes were a hit because they were in the shape of a bunny with chocolate chip eyes and a strawberry mouth. Plan on the meal taking a while and bring toys for the kids because no crayons or coloring pages... More

South Padre in general was not as gluten free friendly as other places we have visited. We loved that the Grapevine has gluten free items clearly marked on the menu. It made it easy on us since we didn't have to try figure out what items would be safe to order. The gluten free pancakes were some of the best... More

My family and I usually come here on check out day to eat their breakfast tacos. I love the flour tortillas. Everything is great. It's always real busy though but it's worth the wait!
