One of the few places that was open late the night we arrived to Alesund. The food was very good. The atmosphere was friendly. And my wife got a cappuccino on the house.

My wife and I had lunch here. The place was busy, but we managed to get a spot. The food was severed well within the expected time frame. The appearance of the food was one that showed freshness, and professional handling. As for the taste, all I can say is, I was not let down.

Looking for somewhere to have an informal dinner then Cafe Lyspunket is the place to go. The pulled pork sandwich is excellent and is more than enough to keep your hunger satisfied. The staff are very friendly and will help you with recommendations.
