Wonderful little cafe. Had the vegetable soup and sausages. Delicious and hearty. A nice varied menu as well. Can't go wrong at Cafe Lyspunktet!

Must stop for the best coffee, warm and inviting, it has a great vibe. We did not try the food but it all looks homemade and delicious.

We found the sandwiches pretty unique. Tried the Hungarian smile (chicken with serrano ham) and Slice of Sidney (fried chicken with bacon and cheese). The descriptions do not do them justice. Only issue was a bit over sauced with may and thousand island. Quite casual and as others have noted there were a lot of toddlers in the cafe. Other... More

We visited Cafe Lyspunktet during a rainy day and immediately we felt like at home: kind staff, nice atmosphere and delicious food. We had the burger and a sandwich, very tasty, and then we thanked God we didn't stop with that, opting for desserts. The cheesecake is amazing. Really! I tried it in US, in Italy, in Spain, in France,... More

I had a cappuccino, a chicken sandwich and a local cherry juice here, and it was all delicious! Very nice seating area, both inside and outside. Most importantly, the staff is top quality! I highly recommend this cafe :)

We visited the cafe after looking at Trip Advisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The prices were reasonable for Norway, although we had been here for a week, and the portion sizes huge. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the setting inside lovely. Just a comment on the pulled pork sandwich which my daughter ordered. There is no mention... More

This was definitely our favorite place to eat in Ålesund! We went there almost every day. The food is delicious, the coffee is awesome, the atmosphere cozy and the service friendly. Prices are also ok, for Norwegian standards :D

Stopped here for lunch on a stop here during a cruise. The presentation is very colorful and the food tastes as good as it looks! However, it seems like everyone brings their little toddlers to this place and they run rampant around the place. This was the only detraction from an otherwise excellent coffee shop/cafe.

This was the perfect restaurant for our last day in Norway. We walked there from our hotel on a cool, rainy day. This restaurant was the perfect place for a meal in a cozy ecclectic environment. The menu was very varied and the portions were large. There was a large choice of coffees and teas. I had the carrot cake... More

I went to this place on a sunday afternoon hoping for a good coffee and a sweet treat. There were only two working at the counter this Sunday morning and it seemed like they had problems making the food/coffee and taking orders at the same time. We were 4 at the table and and we had to go back and... More
