Reviews of interest

The New York Times (2015) “There is always something to discover at this little épicerie; it has a beautiful selection of cake and pastry decorations, including tiny silver dragées and violet-infused leaves of sugar. There are natural liquid aromas, pistachio and rose pastes and emulsifiers. Kilo bags of dried fruits and nuts are perfect to take as snacks on long walks. A selection of sardines and tuna in pretty tins (about 3 euros each) and Edmond Fallot stone-ground mustard, packaged in a decorative tin pail (about 3 euros) are perfect gifts.”

Food and Wine (2011) “This shop is known for its stock of quality baking ingredients, like chocolates and cocoas, plus a wide range of spices and preserves.”

David Lebovitz (2007) “If G. Detou didn’t exist, I couldn’t live in Paris…This little shop near Les Halles is stocked, literally, floor-to-ceiling with everything a cook or baker could want.”
