G. Detou

An epicure's dream, stocked wall-to-wall with goodies to take back to an apartment kitchen or stash in your luggage.

Don’t be fooled by the unassuming appearance of this shop, tidy but crammed to the rafters with products; it is the reliable source for quality ingredients, and a pilgrimage destination for chefs and bakers. The name is a play on words: “G. Detou” sounds like j’ai de tout which means, “I have everything.” This friendly shop, which opened a second location in Lyon, lives up to its name. Bitesee tip: You have to present your purchases at one kiosk, pay at the other, and then return to collect your loot.
