Best cafè in Ålesund

Nice atmosphere with art from local artists and lovley staff (mostly young people). You get good portions for good prices (being a norwegian cafè).

I often go to this cafe in Alesund, so often that I did not become familiar with any other cafe in Alesund. I enjoy the ability to be able to look out of the windows and enjoy Precious Bean coffee. Plus the workers are always willing to have a chat and show me that they see me.

I would say this cafe is like a second home to me but it's actually almost a first home! Always had superb service, coffee and food and the staff will regularly go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to develop friendships. Always a favourite of mine. Go there for a cosy time, any day.

I have been there a couple of times and it's awesome! I ordered a burger and it was one of the best I've ever tasted! It was fresh and juicy. Great place and I recommend it to everyone!

This cafe evokes the city vibe in this coastal town. Ålesund is where calm and quaint are the norm, yet in the cafe you feel alive from the always friendly staff to the cozy atmosphere to the delicious cuisine, Lyspunket is my favorite cafe in Ålesund! A must go!

The cafe is always crowded, with self service and free internet. The food was gluten free and healthy but not so special.

This is more of a cafe bar rather than a restaurant, but it is none the worse for that. The decor is relaxed, & the atmosphere casual. There were as many customers sitting on the sofas enjoying a coffee as there were diners. Although the menu is fairly safe the food was of a good standard, & was reasonably priced... More

This is my favorite place! I've tasted most of the food in the menu, and still struggling to decide what to eat, because its so many good choices! The staff and people who are working there are lovely. And they have the best coffee in the city - if you're asking me!

My husband and I were visiting Alesund off the Ryndam cruise ship and were told Cafe Lyspunket was the best cafe for coffees. We were not disappointed...the coffee and service was great. And to top it off the lady who served us was from our homeland, Australia. Hi Jade...
