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.

Great place for breakfast and lunch

Visited with party of 4. All had different lunch items. Large servings and 3 out of 4 were great. The other one ( beef fajitas) left a lot to be desired. Beef had little seasoning, peppers & onions overlooked, and tortilla (yes, only 1 large) was fried to point where hard to roll. Fish tacos were... read more

My wife and I had a seafood omelet. It was delicious. This Coffeehouse had some of the "Best" coffee on South Padre. The waitress was very friendly. I would highly recommend this café to anyone that visits South Padre. Plan on going back there next year.

While visiting my snowbirding parents, we decided to visit their favorite breakfast place, and I'm sure glad we did. From the second we entered, the waiter was very friendly and prompt. My pancake was delish. My folks got an omlet which they also enjoyed. And everything was very reasonably priced! Love The Grapevine!

Why should reading emails be done in a place without good coffee or breakfast? I want our cafe to be a relaxing place where anyone can start their day off correctly, so I'm glad we provided that space for you. Hopefully you'll be back soon, and maybe even without having to read emails. We'll always be here to serve up... More

While we wish that we had been 4 for 4, we're glad you all stopped by. We want to make sure that all our meals are cooked to perfection, so we hate that the fajitas didn't live up to their expectations. If you ever feel like a dish isn't exactly how you like it, please feel free to tell one... More

Restaurant was very unique and very different combinations of omelets and so forth in it. Also was a brew house, specializing in their own coffee that they roast themselves. Recommended

So glad y'all enjoyed the eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy, Pat. And we want our coffee to be the kind of brew that invites our patrons to come in and sit for a while. That said, we hope you'll both come by again soon to enjoy another cup. From our table to yours, Doug Krawczynski, General Manager More

The best shrimp on or near the island, delicious and varied menu but the excellent service and friendly staff kept us coming back every morning! We came as customers and left as friends.

Enjoyed the Grapevine so much we had it two mornings in a row. Had the Spanish omelet the first day and the super size taco the next. Both items were good but thought the taco was superb.
