We ate at Grapevine Cafe our 1st morning in SPI because it was close to our condo. The coffee is good and strong and overall I recommend it. The wait was long and our waitress was slow but friendly and attentive to all our requests. This place gets packed so don't be in a hurry!

I'm honored to have earned your recommendation, Petra -- it's really great to hear the coffee was tasty and the service friendly! That said, I'm sorry if the overall speed wasn't quite what you were hoping for. We make each meal to-order so it's fresh and cooked to your specifications, so it can take longer than other places. I hope... More

This was a Hispanic restaurant and the scrambled eggs with choirizo was to die for. The service was excellent and fast. The restaurant was clean and had a nice atmosphere. Enjoyed every minute.

Great place for a cup of coffee... I ordered the Waffle with the fruit. I was charged $3.84 for the fruit. When I asked the waitress why I was charged so much when the menu states: Add Fruit $1, she said "I thought you wanted the fruit cup". The 'FRESH OJ' did not taste so great. It had other ingredients... More

Food was plain. Went for breakfast, not much taste. Coffee is good and service was outstanding. Just not a fan of the food.

We have been going to Grapevine for 15 years and have recommend it to all of our guests and friends in the past.

Sorry about this situation, Seth. Along with several staff members not showing up, we had issues with our electricity that were beyond our control. Because of these unusual circumstances, it would have been very slow service and a very long wait, so we felt it was the right thing to be honest with all our patrons about our limited capacity...

Stopped here for breakfast on the way to work on my condo. Got a basic ham and cheese omelet with hash browns and a coffee. The 3 egg omelet was pretty big with lots of ham in it. The hash browns looked home made and we're browned nicely. All this for a little over $10.

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.
