Very busy day and long wait for food but everything was tasty. Especially enjoyed the mimosas with fresh squeezed orange juice.

We had our family of 15. Even though the diner was packed-a good sign-the staff got us seated quickly. Everyone was friendly and the food was classic diner fair with a hint of TexMex. We all left very satisfied.

Tried this place for breakfast after reading many good reviews. Got seated right away. Our waiter was awesome and great at making recommendations. I had a half order of biscuits and sausage gravy. It was okay. Also ordered the spinach omelet that came with hash browns. I didn't like the hash browns but omelet was loaded with spinach. The best... More

Marie, while I do love that you enjoyed your coffee and that the service matched up with our high standards, I do wish your entrees had tasted extraordinary. As you may have seen from the reviews, our shrimp and grits are one of our more popular dishes, so it's disappointing that they were underwhelming. We're always working hard to give... More

We went there last Sunday morning 05/15/16 and had Sonya as our server when we sat up at the bar. It was my 2nd time there and I was STILL impressed by the nice sized portions, the quality of food, and the fun waitstaff.

after trhying a couple other places, we lucked out on this one! The waffles had the best taste on all SPI. The chorizos and eggs were sublime, just right, and the service the friendliest. We are coming back!!

Small cafe does breakfast or lunch- plenty of food. Tables are a little tight - ours was next to a storage door and we had to move a bit when an employee had to access the closet. Otherwise, as good as any and will probably go back.

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.
