The Staff

Our friendly staff is always looking for a good time and they are in the kitchen long before the first customer arrives. They enjoy making their restaurant a friendly and relaxed area. It's customary for them to crack jokes and tease the customers. They consider each other family because of the time they spend together.

Come visit us for great food and our company. We're located at 18415 Bracken Dr. in Bracken, TX or call us at (210) 651-6515.

I have worked here for the past 14 years; The last four years of which I have had the pleasure of owning!! I absolutely love this place. I moved to Bracken in June of 1981 and walked in here when it was a bar just to check the local hang out. I felt right at home ever since and wouldn't have it any other way. People are friendly and interesting to say the least. It's not just a job – it is a way of life for me... I hope to pass the same feelings of good home hospitality on to you. Welcome to my home.

I was job hunting in 1993. I came across an ad for help at the Bracken Store Cafe. I've been here ever since!! I consider myself lucky working for Linda and meeting a lot of interesting people. I'm so at home while I'm working. I can't ever imagine working anywhere else. My only problem is picking out my retirement booth.


I've worked at the cafe off and on since 2000! I look forward to going to work; it's my home away from home. My grandfather was apart of this cafe when it was a bar; and now it is my turn! My family is here too! I am the little heifer, who has to watch my P's and Q's, because "Linda said!"


When I answered the ad in the Herald, little did I know what I would be getting myself into. I found myself working with some of the most fun people I'd ever met. I've been here almost a year, and I can't see leaving anytime soon...because Linda said.


Hi, working at Bracken Store Cafe is like coming home for me since I had worked as a bartender for the past owners, Bobbie (Heitkamp) Peace and Jim Peace in the 80's. I met Linda at the store and have remained friends over the years. She is a beautiful person, inside and out and I enjoy working for her. I'm the senior of the staff and all of them treat me with the greatest respect and I'm glad to be a part of the "Bracken Store Cafe." They are fun and they keep me young!
