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.

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

Our server was intent on making sure we got the value of the groupon we arrived with. We enjoyed the food and the service. Not extraordinary, but solid.

The shrimp fajitas were very good, homemade fresh tortillas, but if you want more than one tortilla, you have to ask for more. It only comes with one... Steak fajitas were just ok. Daughter had chicken club, which was amazing, other daughter had... More

We stopped in for breakfast and the staff were very friendly. They talked my husband into trying the chicken waffle (waffle, fried chicken breast, gravy, butter and syrup...). Surprisingly it was a nice combo. The coffee selections were tasty.

Four of us ate there three times in one week. Food was excellent and the service was the same. Look for Martha or Gino. Both made us feel valued as customers, were very helpful and are an asset to the Café. Can't recommend it enough.
