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.

The food was amazing and everyone gave great service, especially Hopie !!! I like the variety of the food choices from French toast to home made flour tortillas . The atmosphere was friendly and they made me feel at home as I as soon as I got there.

I hadn't been to Grapevine in yearssss and I must say I was impressed with the changes. The service was excellent! Hopie (ask for her!) waited on us and was the perfect balance of attentive but not overbearing, making sure our coffee cups were refilled and we had everything we needed. We were catching up with friends so it was... More

We come to South Padre Island several times a year and Grapevine Cafe is always one of our stops. They have the absolute best breakfast tacos! Everything there is great but the tacos are definitely our favorite. The staff is amazing, especially Hopie and Dora. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We placed a large carryout order on a Monday. Their sign by the register said Barbacoa was the special. When we order some barbacoa tacos, they told us that it was for Saturday and Sunday. We should have just let it go at that, instead when we were told that they still had barbacoa, we order some. Big mistake! The... More

Can't say the family wanted to go back, nothing memorable. I would have to say, Denny's is just as good. The family liked what we ordered, but frankly it doesn't stand out!

We ate at Grapevine for breakfast during our trip. The cinnamon rolls were exceptional and the meals were good but the service was very slow. We waited at least 10 minutes to have someone take our drink order and hand us menus. After that, it took quite a bot of time to get our meals. Then they forgot my French... More

We visited Grapevine on a Saturday morning in June 2014 about 9 a.m. Fairly busy but we found a table for five. The service was just about right for breakfast. Not rushed but attentive enough. Our waitress (Flor) was a pleasure – very engaging and friendly. I am not a coffee drinker – but the three at our table who... More

Atmosphere is quiet and friendly. Owner is very helpful with coffee choices. We purchased two coffees and ended up purchasing a bag of local house ground coffee to take home. Very delicious!
