Soul-food spot known for its preserves offering breakfast, lunch & Saturday brunch in colorful digs. The first thing you get when you arrive at Alcenia’s is a hug from the owner herself. Betty Joyce “B. J.” Chester-Tamayo believes that she has the world’s greatest customers. “I thank you for coming,” she tells each one, “because there are so many places you can go, and when you come to me, I really appreciate that.” But if it weren’t for a tragic event in B. J.’s life, there would be no Alcenia’s to go to at all.
