My family and I visited S Padre Island. The prior day we walked so much and spent time at the beach and swimming pool that we woke up hungry. We wanted to go to a good food place and not that pricy. We used trip advisor and looked for good reviews For a breakfast place. We found this one and... More

It's pretty awesome that this was your first visit to our restaurant, and I hope the rest of your tour of the island was just as splendid. We're looking forward to seeing you on your next... More

We went her for breakfast . Not only was the food great but the service was above and beyond. The price was reasonable. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated but it was so worth it. I had French toast with the shrimp & grits and I was in heaven....

Dan was our server, he was amazing and so was the food! I ordered the Shrimp and grits and it was great, the sausage patty at the bottom added the perfect blend of salt and savory. My friend ordered the eggs Benedict and it was awesome! Great place to eat, but it is crowded and needs more parking.

Kayla, I'm so excited to share this with Dan -- I know he'll be overjoyed to read such heart-warming compliments. Also, I love knowing that our recipes met your taste buds in a joyous mix of salty and savory, and your friend got one of the house favorites with that eggs Benedict. Hopefully we'll be welcoming you back in again... More

We've tried several places for breakfast on the island and Grapevine is the winner. Great food and great service. Our coffee never went half empty before a server was offering to top it off. We will definitely be back, this is will be our go to breakfast joint.

Hey there, I can't truly express how much this means to me. When we first opened our doors, we wanted to be the breakfast and coffee shop that all island-goers can depend on, and we're excited to be that place for you. Hopefully we'll be welcoming you back in again very soon, and until then, I wish you the safest... More

Came here for breakfast on a Saturday. Even though they were packed, it only took about 10 minutes to get a table for 4. Usual breakfast items, which all tasted great! Pancakes, omelettes, and they even have different versions of iced coffees. Definitely must try this place when you're down here.

This use to be the perfect breakfast spot and lots of food for little money. Now they hype coffee bar, service is really slow, and its really over priced for breakfast ($35)...

I'm sorry you feel like the quality of our service has declined -- that's really disappointing to hear. I know the service can be a bit slow, but we make all of our food in house from scratch, so meals take a bit longer overall than your average place. I hope we get another opportunity to really impress you in... More

First, thank you so much for the courteous services! It's refreshing to see that you treat all your customers equally. My family and I ate here during our vacation stay. Our little one had the fluffiest pancake, it was so huge, and he did his best to finish it. My husband had the "Breakfast Taco" definitely a man size meal... More

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.
