Galeries Lafayette Gourmet in Paris is a one-stop foodie destination, especially if you're in the city for a quick trip or otherwise pressed for time. It's a great place for travelers in search of foodie souvenirs, since you can buy many Paris specialties here -- Jean-Paul Hevin chocolates, Mariage Freres tea. But this is not a tourist trap -- Parisians account for about 60% of the clientele, which is why you'll also find supermarket basics here, like milk, eggs and produce.

Galeries Lafayette Gourmet stocks over 10,000 products, 70% of which are French. In true department store fashion, the store sells its own products, but it also houses additional locations of locally popular restaurants and brands -- for instance celebrated chocolatier and pastry-maker Sadaharu Aoki has a counter here.
