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 were not impressed. Read the menu carefully everything needs to be added on for an extra charge. The hash browns were half an uncooked hard potato. The prices were high and the beans were ok while the rest of the food was cold. The bath room was wack yo.

Simon, I have to admit, it's pretty concerning to read about your visit. We use the freshest ingredients and treasured recipes, so it's a shame your meal wasn't up to par. Our hashbrowns are made fresh every day, so I apologize if yours didn't live up to your expectations. If you'd like to discuss this further, please feel free to... More

My husband is a picky coffee drinker. He went on a mission to find satisfactory morning pep. His journey led him to this cafe and he was pleasantly surprised. He brought back delicious coffee and superb blueberry muffins.

This is the only restaurant that I was dissapointed by on my trip to South Padre Island. Primarily my complaint is that the service was poor, it took several requests to get items that were part of the dishes ordered...and the biscuits. The biscuits were tough and impervious to fluids. I suppose that perhaps in the traditions of the sea... More

Grapevine Cafe is an excellent breakfast cafe. This is the second year we've visited this cafe and have always been extremely satisfied.

Everyone enjoyed the coffee and breakfast specials. Pancakes were fluffy and tasty, migas had a good tang, and the hash browns were perfectly crispy.
