Sunday morning breakfast always draws a hungry crowd, so we expected to wait. We waited about 30 mins for a party of 4. Our waitress was very busy, but she gave excellent service. Two of us ordered pancakes with eggs and bacon as an ad on. My husband ordered the French toast with the same add on. Our youngest wanted... More

The gourmet coffee was fantastic. I enjoyed the 16 oz mocha latte brewed too perfection! The large breakfast fajita taco covered the entire plate, well seasoned, tender and delicious. My daughter loved her pancake and eggs. Ask for Sonya - She'll provide excellent service and is always smiling!

We were not impressed. Read the menu carefully everything needs to be added on for an extra charge. The hash browns were half an uncooked hard potato. The prices were high and the beans were ok while the rest of the food was cold. The bath room was wack yo.

Simon, I have to admit, it's pretty concerning to read about your visit. We use the freshest ingredients and treasured recipes, so it's a shame your meal wasn't up to par.

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.
