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.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Homemade tortillas, yum! Family had pancakes, migas, chilaquiles, chorizo and all were good. Cinnamon roll was hard. Service was slow, but friendly. Definitely get something that includes tortillas!

“Good place to eat breakfast or lunch while in SPI”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We were looking for a different and decent place to eat breakfast in SPI before we rolled out of town, and saw this place was ranked pretty highly on Tripadvisor. It was a fairly busy place but I think we got in just before it got really crowded. Its kind of a small place with a cozy coffee-shop feel to it. The they had a lot of choices on the menu for breakfast and lunch, so there is probably something here for everyone. The prices were fairly reasonable too. Apparently they roast their own coffee on premises, and it was in fact pretty fresh and tasty.

I had a big breakfast fajita taco and my girlfriend had a breakfast tray with oatmeal, milk, fruit, etc. Everything was fresh and tasty, and the tortilla on my taco was also home made, which was a nice plus. The portions were pretty good and gave us enough food to hold us for a while on the road. I would have been really great if the fajita meat was grilled over mesquite or something, but it was still pretty good. The service was also pretty friendly.

If you are looking for a for a nice clean place to eat breakfast or lunch in SPI and want a wide variety of options, you should give this place a try.

“Gem of a Place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

During our recent visit to SPI, we took a chance and ate breakfast at the Grapevine Cafe & Coffeehouse. I'm glad we did. I ordered a cup of oatmeal which is served with brown sugar and a cup of milk. I also ordered a fruit cup and a side of wheat toast. My BF ordered a fajita style taco which is served with lettuce and avocado. My breakfast was exceptional and the fruit was fresh and yummy. They also roast their own coffee which was delicious. I would have given this place a "EXCELLENT" rating if the fajita meat was grilled a bit longer. It tasted steamed instead. Also, I'm very picky about tortillas. The ones served here did not appear to be homemade. It would be nice if they were. None the less, this is a GREAT place for breakfast. I'll definitely eat here again when visiting SPI.

“Showing off our little secret ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Took aunt and uncle who have properly on the island - thru had never been. Met for breakfast and it was fantastic as always. Menu is economical and the service is great. Try the mucho breakfast taco - it's a giant but unbelievably good. Owner has redecorated to make it more accessible and it's quite roomy inside.. Coffee is great too!
