Opened in June 2021, Møllefossen Café has successfully brought together a cozy modern interior in a historical building with a handpicked selection of excellent coffee and creative dishes. On top of that located beautifully at Lysakerelva riverbank next to a small waterfall.
The first impression you get when you enter Møllefossen Café is the fresh, contemporary tasteful ambiance with the friendly personnel. Since it was not full when I first was there, I immediately chose to sit by the big windows facing the river. It was very pleasant to enjoy my coffee listening to the cozy sounds of the little waterfall literally next door.
Møllefossen literally means The Mill Waterfall and is closely linked to the industrial history of the area – it was the main source of power for the old sawmill and other industries along the waterfalls of the Lysakerelva river (check out the article). Møllefossen café, therefore, is a perfect starting of finishing point when on a walking tour of this graceful river.
The best way to come to Møllefossen café is by train, coming from the city center just get any train going to south Norway that stops at Lysaker station (three stops from Oslo S central station). From the station, it’s a short 5-minute walk to the café.
