I had the Breakfast taco with sausage, tomato, onion and avocado; and an iced mocha coffee. My inlaws both had the chicken and waffles. My husband had eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. My kids had the scrambled eggs and pancakes. I think the food was decent, didn't blow me away. The iced mocha coffee was okay, but I am pretty... More

Lyndsey, it's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed the food at our place, but I'm sorry that our service wasn't up to the same level for you. As you probably know from looking at our other reviews, this kind of service is not at all characteristic of a visit to our place. I sincerely hope you will... More

The husband and I went here for breakfast and once again, Grapevine Cafe did not disappoint. We came here with a group of friends in 2015, the morning after we got married in SPI, so we needed to make a return visit. We both ordered the veggie omelet and added ham, and I, of course, had one of their mimosas,... More

Spent the night on the island and went here for breakfast a Sunday morning. It wasn't very busy and yet the service wasn't very good. We had to wait a long time to order but the food was ok ( average).

This place was so great. My fiancé and I were looking for a nice little spot to have a unique breakfast not typical of your normal American breakfast and found this little gem. I had the shrimp omelet and vanilla bean latte. Was not the least bit disappointed.

This place is fantastic! My wife and I went out with my folks for breakfast, and I'm glad this is the restaurant we chose. The food was wonderful, it was reasonably priced, and the staff were friendly and courteous. They have your standard bacon, eggs, and pancakes but I would recommend the Mexican breakfast options! Eggs with chorizo was amazing... More

After a 2-hr walk on the beach, my wife and I enjoyed a coffee and scone. She had the Caffe Latte and I had a French Vanilla Mocha. Both made exceptionally and well presented in large, clear glass mugs. We had the Raspberry/White chocolate scone and Blueberry Scone. Both were great – heated and very tasty. We got there about...

Good food, service good, a little more pricy than other cafe's. The hash brown's were excellent. The Belgian waffle was average.

While I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your service and food overall, I'm sorry that the Belgian waffle wasn't above and beyond your standards like the hash browns were.

Last time we ate breakfast here a couple of years ago, we really enjoyed the excellent breakfast. On the Island again, so we decided to try the lunch for Mexican food. Arrived at 2:30 and the sign said winter hours, closed at 2pm. So, they just lost our business for good. Check to see if they are open if arriving... 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.
