We were looking for a place to have breakfast and stumbled on this place. It is right on the main drag and easy to get in and out. The restaurant is fairly typical diner in its decor. It is clean and straight forward. Nothing special...More

The place has a nice relaxed atmosphere with cool American music. The huevos rancheros are really good and the banana pancakes too. The coffee is also really good too.

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.
