Betty’s Deli and Grocery opened in Greenpoint four weeks ago, just before Thanksgiving. The staff told Greenpointers that their first week in the neighborhood was slow, most likely thanks to the holiday, but patronage has gained momentum in the past couple of weeks.
The employees at Betty’s are incredibly warm and friendly and willing to help find whatever you need. They also offer fast and free delivery in the neighborhood via the popular apps including Seamless, GrubHub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash.
Betty’s Deli and Grocery is open everyday from 6 a.m. – 11 p.m.
