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.

Atmosphere is casual pleasant but all the food comes out COLD. This makes for unpleasant breakfast. The place was about a third full so there was no excuse for the hour wait for out cold breakfast to arrive.

My husband and I are visiting for our honey moon and we're looking for a place to eat breakfast. They have great service and the biscuits and gravy were amazing. Very reasonably priced too!

Small place, conveniently located, good service, good prices, several great choices! What more could you ask for! They had a nice selection on their menu! My husband had a shrimp omelette which was very good and my daughter had a western omelette! I had a regular breakfast. Worth checking it out for a quick breakfast on the island! We would... More

Celebrating our honeymoon we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waitress Bea was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely return the next time we're on the island.

My family and I truly enjoyed our breakfast here. We've been eating at Denny's every day since we've been here on SPI and decided to try somewhere new. Great choice! We ate more and paid less, the food was sooo delicious! (I recommend the Crab Meat Omelet by the way). The server was so friendly and helpful...just all around great... More

Wonderful find.! The food, atmosphere and service was excellent. Coffee and cinnamon buns on the first visit brought us back for lunch the following day. We were not disappointed. Its a shame its not open in the evenings. We could then eat every meal there! Keep up the good work!

The quality of the food was lackluster at best. The service left a lot to be desired as well. The cost was average. The table had not been wiped before we sat down and we had to ask to have it cleaned.

My wife & I always visit the Grapevine at least 3 or 4 times while in Texas. We usually have the cinnamon buns and coffee but I was hungry this time and ordered the Mexican Breakfast. It included almost everything that was listed on the menu and was delicious. I have breakfasts similar to this but I don't recall any... More
