The Braca family has contributed much to Sea Isle. Lou and Madelena Braca settled here in 1901 and began over a century of family owned and operatedbusinesses and legacy. Henri’s Bar @ Braca Café is the original property that was first owned and operated by Lou and Madelena. This property began as a tonsorial parlor, otherwise known as a barbershop. Throughout the years, this property included a grocery store, news agency, and a café, which is the business that has remained to this day.

In 1908, The Braca Café was born and operated by many members of the Braca family. Louis Braca, Angela Braca Dalrymple, Henrietta Braca Gibson and Lena Braca Castaldi were the bartenders, cooks, servers and always happy faces you would meet when you entered Braca family eatery.
