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.

Brunch before Beach = A good day

The food is fantastic but the attitude, attention and personality of the servers is the highlight of a great meal experience. Great staff, quality food, perfect atmosphere. If you're looking for breakfast or brunch this is the place.

Do yourself a favor and go to Denny's!!! Service here was terrible, the food wasn't much better. Orange juice was served warm. To be an island diner this place was very disappointing.

We went for breakfast two days in a row. Two different servers. Equally amazing experience. The food is fantastic but the attitude, attention and personality of the servers is the highlite of a great meal experience. This will be the only place we eat breakfast on the island when we visit.

We had a wonderful vacation here in South Padre Island. The servers and manager at Grapevine Cafe made it even better. They were the first faces our family saw every morning - they were SO upbeat and welcoming! I can't remember the manager's name, but he was high energy and super smiley. There's no Starbucks in SPI, so we settled... More

You can create your own breakfast tacos. Thank goodness the waitress pointed out that there is a smaller option that was still huge. They have a large menu so everyone in your group will find something wonderful. The coffee is great too, not the average café coffee.

Ate breakfast with my family. Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast tacos, pancakes, waffles and coffee. The food tasted fresh and homemade. The service was customer oriented. Eating at Grapevine made our stay at South Padre much more enjoyable because of the homelike environment. Grapevine is our number one choice for dining out!

We visited SPI during the last week of January, 2015. A getaway from the winter snows back home! We tried a lot of the local eateries in town. Grapevine was the one we liked the most. Gino has daily specials - the meatloaf dinner is really good! Sonya waited on us the first day and we asked for her again... More

I did not like my Huevos rancheros at all. Other than that everything was ok. Service was good. Restaurant was clean. My husband had no complaints about his eggs and bacons. So I am rating it 4 stars since I think the problem was I just picked something they make a little different but I didn't like. It tasted like... More
