We came here with friends to brunch before hitting the beach and it was awesome. My fiance and I shared a Supersized taco with eggs, beans, chorizo and cheese. It was definitely enough for both. Next time we definitely want to try the cafe options...More

Far from good eggs Benedict which tasted like a dirty grill. The shrimp and grits were watery. The bacon was good, but a restaurant shouldn't be able to mess that up. Worst part was feeling the gruel in my stomach an hour later.More

We take a lot of pride in our breakfast, especially our famous eggs Benedict and shrimp and grits. It's honestly surprising to hear this, especially when so many of our guests love those two specific dishes. However, we always welcome feedback, and it sounds like...More

Great food, great atmosphere. Stopped at the Grapevine twice, loved it the first time. Our second visit was just as good. It was super busy (as expected) on the 4th, but the service was still great. If it's busy it takes a bit to get...More

When we first got there we had no no greeter or anyone to take out names. The staff seemed disorganized. Food was bland and disappointing. Eggs over cooked, pancakes dry and the coffee was like hot water. Very disappointing!More

Excellent breakfast and Brenda was an excellent server. She is cute as a button with the "how can I make you feel special" attitude. Eggs were cooked to perfection and Huevos rancheros didn't disappoint either. Will come again!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.
