Willie's Deli which was originally located on Zhongshan N. Rd. on the East side near Taipei American School is just up the street past Tienmu East Rd. around the corner from the underground public parking entrance.

Cheese, Wine, baking goods? Willie's Deli is the place. In the late 1970’s, foreign companies began locating factories and offices in Taiwan. With them came their foreign employees and their families who were anxious to find the food and goods to which they were accustomed in their home countries. To fulfill the demand for foreign products, the store, (originally called G&G Delicatessen), was founded in Tianmu.Initially, goods were imported from Hong Kong, but a lack of variety led to a switch to direct importing from Europe. Today, Willie’s Deli stocks goods from Europe, the USA and all over the world.Since 1979, freshly baked bread, delivered daily from the Ritz Hotel, Taipei has been a signature item for Willie’s Deli. The Ritz Hotel has European trained bakers with imported ovens and bread making equipment so they can make the finest European style breads including Baguettes, Croissants, Rye, Multigrain, Whole Wheat as well as Puff Pastry. No one else in Taiwan makes bread as good as this. Willie’s Deli sells these delicious breads and also uses them in their fantastic Gourmet Sandwich range.
