I was SO happy to find a place on the island that served many different GF options. I had two different types of pancakes that were delicious! My husband is not GF and enjoyed the Super Tacos! We went back twice during our trip.

This place was great breakfast. So good, that we came back a second time. We actually got to sit in the same seat as before.

We returned the next day for breakfast after having a wonderful one the day before. Large portions. Great bacon. The club sandwich looked amazing. I’d return just to try it.

We happened across this cafe on whim, and oh what a find! If you don’t arrive early be prepared to wait a LONG time. We were only a table of two and our wait was shorter than estimated, but we did sit outside....a bit warm....More

We came for lunch and were not disappointed! Loved the lemon blueberry goat cheese pancakes and the jalapeno jack chicken fried chicken sandwich. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly too.

Placed to go orders for breakfast one morning. I had shrimp omelette with shrimp, and cheese, spinach. I didn't ask for tomatoes but was in omelette. Fortunately, it still had really great flavors and taste. Service was efficient.

I'm sorry about the confusion, Maxim. That omelet is always made with tomatoes. Nevertheless, I'm pleased it hit the spot! Thanks for the compliments, and we hope you'll come see us again. Sincerely, Doug Krawczynski, General Manager

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.
