My friend and I were killing time before a concert and stopped for a latte and sweet. It was near closing time and we were the only customers. We ordered a latte and blueberry scones. The scones were full of blueberries but their consistency was more like an under baked muffin. It was still good. Prices were comparable to Starbucks.... More

We had breakfast and although it was a little pricey, the food was very good and the service was excellent. I had ham and eggs and the ham slice was a little thin, but good. Also, it seems like a lot of places have trouble cooking over easy eggs but mine were perfect. Will return

Thank you for your kind compliments about our food and service -- our goal is to make sure all of our homemade meals are worth it every time.

Arrived at 7 AM New Year's day for a great breakfast. Happy crew and service with a smile. The meal ran about $9, but could not eat it all. In season they have great orange juice.

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.
