I have been gluten free for 5 years! This is the best breakfast I have ever had! You would never know the pancakes were gluten free. The service was great too. We ate 3 of our 4 breakfasts here. Try the gluten free lemon blueberry...More

I had the Mexican breakfast, wife had the banana bread french toast. Both were served in reasonable time and were quite tasty.

Friendly and clean restaurant serving breakfast all day long, as well as other meals too. Our breakfast was cooked to order, the bacon was thick and perfectly cooked. Great coffee too. Excellent Service, with properly priced meals. I gladly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Food was great and prices very reasonable. We were seated immediately, and at the beginning the service was great; however, for some reason towards the end of our meal, our server seemed to disappear. We waited for quite some time for our bill, but finally...More

Farm to table. Great coffee, with lots of choices. Huevos Mexicanos was quite tasty. They told us the wait would be 15-30 minutes. In reality, it was closer to 10. Service was prompt and friendly.

Grapevine is an Island staple. Especially known for its breakfast and extra large homemade breakfast tacos. Try the machacado a la mexicana.... its to die for.

The Spanish Omelette was very yummy. The Eggs Benedict were on point. However the hash browns were not as good, mushy. The avocado slices are $2, pricey for the Valley. Overall good restaurant.More

It's great to hear you enjoyed the Spanish omelet as well as the eggs benedict, but I'm sorry if you could have been more impressed with the hashbrowns. Your feedback is unusual but certainly appreciated nevertheless. We look forward to showing you a 5-star experience...More

Loved this little diner. Walked in expecting a coffee shop, but was pleasantly surprised with so much more! Extensive coffee menu, along with full breakfast and lunch choices. Wish it was closer to home!

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.
