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.

Really liked this place. The food was fresh and they were one of the only places with fruit on the menu. The staff was extra helpful and they were happy to accommodate any requests we had for additions and changes. They make an excellent cinnamon bun. Also their salsa was really good on the eggs benedict. Who knew that combination... More

We loved Grapevine! Our breakfast was delicious and hard to decide what to have because thee were so many great selections. You do not need to over a fancy coffee drink, because their standard coffee is so good. We even bought some to take home. The service was outstanding. I'd go back Ina minute!!

We loved the fresh squeezed orange juice and breakfast. Went back for lunch and the service was poor and Mexican food was not satisfactory.

Stopped for lunch and was very warmly greeted and seated. Quality food at very fair prices. Located right in the middle of the island on padre blvd. everything you would expect from a family run cafe. Mexican plate is good.

Husband and I were visiting over Christmas break. The island is pretty quiet, so we were happy this place was open. Portions and quality were great. I had migas and couldn't finish them. Great coffee selection and awesome fresh squeezed juice. I appreciate that they carry rainforest certified coffee. Beans are roasted in house. Nice to see they had gluten... More

Tacos good. We had the basic flour, 3 egg, one with avocado added & one with jalapeños & potato (the best). Great tortilla, fresh food. Service excellent, Beatrice was our waitress. Food a little slow coming out, but place was packed, so totally understandable. Highly recommend.

This is a very pleasant small restaurant with a good breakfast and lunch menu, with emphasis on Mexican fare. they also roast their own coffees, from Mexico, Central and South America, and do a nice job. Mild, freshly roasted coffee a pleasant change from burned stale beans (think Starbucks) and coffee that sits in a thermos for the day. Ask... More
