I smelled this cafe while on a walk and had to go back. We ABSOLUTELY loved every bite and the mimosas were FANTASTIC!!! We ordered lots everyday and shared. The house made tortillas were amazing. Had the crab omelette with hollandaise sauce with avocado and salsa twice and they were amazing. The organic burger with raspberry sauce and cotija cheese-OH... More

The fact that we invited you in with the smells of lunch is pretty cool! With that, mimosas are absolutely necessary when you're out on the island, so I love that you were able to indulge a bit at our restaurant. It's so exciting to welcome in some new friendly faces, and hopefully you'll be visiting again very soon. Until... More

After finding out that our usual favorite place for breakfast (Manuel's) was closed, we decided to try Grapevine. The place was pretty busy around 9:30am and we waited about 15 min for a table. Many others came in behind us and some were having to wait outside standing in the sun. Didn't take us long to understand why the place... More

Go for breakfast, not lunch. The restaurant was recommended by the manager of the hotel where we were staying at in the island. First, we went for lunch. I had the chicken tacos and the corn tortillas I ordered were fried. It's like they run them in oil before preparing the tacos. The beans seem to be from a can.... 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.
