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. This morning, we were told upon arrival that they were not seating any more tables because too many employees had not shown up and they had just seated a group of 16 and a group of 8.... More

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...

To the owner Douglas, get better service and management! This is a great restaurant as far as food goes! The breakfast is wonderful and the food comes out in a timely manner!

We arrived roughly at 11:30pm for a late brunch. Thankfully, we missed the crowd coming in at 12:30. I ordered the Eggs Benedict Grapevine which included the salmon and two traditional breakfasts with eggs, sausage, and hashbrows and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

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.

The husband and I went here for breakfast and once again, Grapevine Cafe did not disappoint.

This place was so great. My fiancé and I were looking for a nice little spot to have a unique breakfast not typical of your normal American breakfast and found this little gem. I had the shrimp omelet and vanilla bean latte. Was not the least bit disappointed.

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.
