one-day visits to Salzburg, Vienna and Bratislava--recommendations?

LorenzoGA | Jun 27, 201506:27 PM     27

This is my wife's and my first visit to Salzburg, Vienna and Bratislava, and our time in each city will be brief. We will have time for one lunch and one dinner in each city, with Salzburg on a Tuesday, Vienna on the following Sunday, and Bratislava the next day. We plan to do walking tours of the historic centers of these cities. Our hotels are not in the centers, so we plan to take public transportation. For example, in Vienna it looks like Pilgramgasse U-bahn is the closest stop to our hotel. Sadly, the Naschmarkt is closed on Sunday.

We would enjoy simple, traditional food from the region, in a casual atmosphere. We enjoy good wine and beer. We would like to visit a coffee house, and we will gladly sample a Viennese torte, but we really do not enjoy sweets very much. Given that we have only one day in each city, what do you suggest to maximize our eating and drinking experiences? The rest of the trip we will be camping and preparing our own food.

I have read through the existing threads, and I see quite a few recommendations, but I am especially concerned about what is open on Sunday night in Vienna, so I thought I would use that as an excuse to start my own thread :-)

LATE ADDITION TO ORIGINAL POST ABOVE: Since we will be camping and preparing many of our own meals between these cities, are there any well regarded markets where we could buy nice provisions, open on either a Tuesday or Wednesday in Salzburg or on a Sunday or Monday in Vienna?
