What do New Yorker's think about Dean & DeLuca and other expensive gourmet shops?

I stopped in here yesterday after not going in for a few years. I used to love going in here whenever I did my food rounds in the city. Now I know why I don't go here anymore. I walked out without buying a thing because there comes a point when this place becomes a total rip off. $3.75 for one small donut, $34 for a small box of cookies from Germany? I don't think so. $25 for another small box. $15.00 for a chocolate babka and not even made with real butter but palm oil. What do you native New Yorkers think about places like this? Do you have other places to get "gourmet" food items or do you pay these prices? Is this a tourist spot?
