Salzachgrill and Café Sacher Salzburg

This sophisticated yet relaxed riverside restaurant offers a selection of grilled meats, including steaks and burgers. It is also a great place to sample one of the city’s most famous deserts – the Salzburger Nockerl (three sugary peaks of soufflé.) Knowledgeable, friendly staff add to the restaurant’s charm. It is part of the Sacher Hotel and connected to the Café Sacher which offers an extensive selection of cakes and other treats, for those who just fancy a really good dessert.

Street food at the Old Market Square (Alter Markt)

When visiting Salzburg, it would be a mistake to skip out on the array of street-food stands which groan under the weight of cured meats, sausages, cheese and pretzels. Stalls in the Old Market Square offer a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, with an array of smoked meat sandwiches and spicy sausages on offer. As well as grabbing lunch, it is also a great spot to pick up gifts or buy fresh fruit and vegetables.

Café Habakuk

Quiet and charming, this is an ideal spot for breakfast or sugary pick me up. Named after a famous clown, it is easy to be drawn in by the window display, with its colourful array of desserts, truffles, cakes among playful cartoon images. Staff pride themselves on their Mozartkugel; made with a marzipan centre and praline coating, it’s their own special recipe which differs from those you’ll find elsewhere. The strudel is also worth a try and in the summer, they serve gelato.

Zwettler’s

Serving traditional Bavarian fare with staff dressed in outfits to match, Zwettlers does not scrimp on quality. Expect sauerkraut, pork sausages, pumpkin soup and high-quality beer from the Kaiser Karl microbrewery. With traditional interiors and a friendly, fun ambiance, you’ll probably share a table with others but this only adds to the convivial atmosphere.

Zum Zirkelwirt

With its cosy, wood-panelled interiors, Zum Zirkelwirt is the place to sample some Austrian classics. Start with soup and dumplings, followed by pork schnitzel with parsley potatoes and cranberries. There is a great beer selection too. It’s a building with a bit of a history, but following a refurbishment, there is also an open-air roof terrace.
