Food: Pâté Maison, Oeufs Gloria and cheese tray
Bond book appearance: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made
“The man took Bond’s order of Pâté Maison followed by Oeufs Gloria and the cheese tray (Bond thought he had better get some stuffing into him!)
” ‘And one more thing, if you will,’ said Bond politely. ‘A small flask of schnapps.'”
” ‘I find I am not sleeping here well up here. Perhaps a nightcap would help. I always have one at home – generally whisky. But here I would prefer schnapps. When in Gloria, do as the Glorians do. Ha ha!'”
“Bond’s drink came. He swallowed it in two gulps and ordered another.”
“Bond toyed with his cheese and coffee until Fräulein Bunt got to her feet and said ‘Come, girls.’
