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.

Grapevine was recommended to us. The coffee was great and it was a good home cooked meal. Of course, I felt the prices were a little higher than I was expecting. I had a spinach omelette, my daughter had sausage biscuits and my husband had a very large breakfast burrito. We all enjoyed our choices. The staff was nice and... More

Tammy, it's wonderful that you enjoyed our coffee and our breakfast options, but it's a shame that you felt prices were a little high. We use the freshest ingredients, so our dishes are priced accordingly. That said, I'm flattered that you and your family enjoyed your meal, and I hope we'll see you again in the future! All my best,... More

Okay even though you are sat quickly DOES NOT MEAN you will get your food quickly. We sat for 30-35 min waiting for our good. Two of the five orders were wrong. Not worth it . They can sit the people but can't get the orders out.

I have to admit, it's really concerning to read about your visit. Our entire staff is usually very efficient and always do their best to get every order out correctly, so I apologize that this wasn't the case for you. I do recall this was a very busy day for us, and we were beyond capacity. That said, I'd really... More

The food is good, but the hours of operation are limited. I had an excellent Belgium waffle and hubby enjoyed his eggs. We will return and tried, but it was closed! Check those hours and days of the week.

Based on tripadvisor reviews, we decided to try Grapevine this morning for breakfast tacos. What a great discovery! Super, friendly service. Superb homemade tortillas and breakfast. Fresh local ingredients. I shall return!

The only reason I'm not giving this place a 5 is because the wait time was a little crazy. However it was Father's Day. Food is great and service was great.

We decided to eat here based upon the reviews. Restaurant was bustling but we found a seat quickly . We ordered breakfast and waited over 20 minutes for food to arrive. No apology was given for the long wait. The server never returned to check on us. The food was good, but not great.
