At Bracy’s Cafe, owner Tracy McCrea serves up of great eats and sweet treats,

We pride ourselves on being a restaurant that serves home cooked food," said McCrea.

Located just off the corner of Fifth and Francis, the business is deeply rooted in the downtown community,

"Not only do we work downtown, we live downtown," said Brett Dalvy, Co-Owner.

They want more people to check them out, so when the Trails West Festival comes into town, businesses like this one are excited.

People come from all over to enjoy the festivities, and we’re excited about more people coming to visit our cafe.

The extra business is something Bracy’s wants to see after the festival is over, with help from a Missouri Western student, they could make that a possibility.

"We’re working with Evan Banks out of the university trying to reach the college crowd let ‘em know that we’re available downtown." said Dalvy. 

The goal is simple: To re-introduce people to downtown, while making them feel at home.

We wanted everybody to feel like their sitting down at mom's kitchen table" said McCrea.   

with more businesses like this one, McCrea says the future is looking bright.

its really exciting for us business owners to look at the future and see what that's gonna hold for us." said McCrea.
