Don't be misled by the name, a lame pun on 'épicerie fine' (delicatessen): you won't find any groceries here, though there are some rather fetching antique weighing scales in the corner. The range of jewellery and accessories lining the shelves is strictly aimed at 'filles', and not necessarily the chichi Rue Saint-Honoré variety – prices such as €12 for a bracelet or €9 for a pair of earrings won't exactly break the bank. Manager Aurélie Vayleux has a marked taste for East Asian designs, and many of the items on sale were actually brought back from her travels around Thailand (we were particularly taken by a collection of lovely animal rings). All in all, an appealingly unpretentious slice of vintage in the midst of one of Paris's swankiest districts.
