The classic American diner. When the locals eat there, you know it is good. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Also, winter hours disappointing, so check first. I think this is a mistake by management, but the food is great, the service very good.More

It's disheartening to know that our small coffee house didn't stand out to you during your visit. We have menus for both lunch and breakfast, so it's surprising that the variety of options weren't up to your expectations. We do like to stick to the...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.
