Looking for really good food, worth it's prize? Check out Lyspunktet cafe! :)

The only disadvantage I can come up with is that the kitches closes a bit to early for my taste. Besides that I rate it 4 stars plus! :)

They have an excellent menu of drinks, and delicious chocolate chip cookies. The price is fair for what you get (considering this is Norway), the atmosphere is cozy and the staff is polite and nice. Have not tried anything on their food menu yet, but I've heard it's wonderful.

We went in search of Café Lyspunket because they had really good reviews on Tripadvisor. Thanks to that we had an lovely meal. The café itself is a bit shabby chic with cool glass ornaments everywhere. You order your food at the bar and it is brought to your table. There aren't that many tables so if there are more... More

The place is not special, but has a good espresso and a delicious chocolate cake (for norwegian patterns = not very sweet). The menu is diverse, and they don't sell any alcoholic beverage. Nice option if you are nearby.

After searching Ålesund for a place to eat that wasn't fully booked and wasn't ridiculously expensive, we found Cafe Lyspunket. The staff were friendly and actually smiled at us when we ordered (a first in Ålesund!!) and the food was good. Definitely recommend!

I think they used some kind of taco-spice on all their food, as the Sydney dish tasted the same as the greek salad... Very very average.

In this little cafe in the center of Ålesund you can always find something you would like to eat, and you'll never be disappointed. Excellent food and atmosphere.

I ate here twice during my stay in Alesund. On both occasions the food was very tasty, and service was friendly and warm. As a vegetarian, Norway can be hit and miss, but I had the vegetarian soup, and tomato soup, both served with hearty bread, and they were both delicious. The coffee is also up to standard, with the... More
