SquareMeal Review of Mouse & de Lotz

A little pocket of tweeness on anything-but-twee Shacklewell Lane, Mouse & de Lotz is a useful address for good coffee & cake just a hop & a skip from Stoke Newington Road. Freshly ground Square Mile coffee (handled with the care it deserves) goes beautifully with elegant cakes (made on the premises) such as lavender or dark chocolate & raspberry, although a Yorkshire tea seems more the thing with an old-fashioned toasted teacake or a slice of cheese on toast. The room is all very ‘girly’ with its vintage china, pretty bird mural & customised antique postcards, so burly men be warned: you may feel like the proverbial bull in a china shop here. Mouse & de Lotz also goes beyond its café remit for the occasional pop-up supper & open mic night.

Dalston's cosiest, loveliest little spot, run by the always charming Nadya and Victoria. The coffee is top drawer, the tiffin divine and there are few better ways of eating out of a hangover than their speck and egg sandwich. A great neighbourhood cafe!

I'm so glad this place is my local – there are several very good cafes in Stokey/Dalston, but none as much of a treat as Mouse and de Lotz. The owners and staff clearly love what they do: the service is friendly, the food is simple and delicious, and their rendering of Square Mile is close to the quality of Espresso Room on Great Ormond Street. Getting anywhere near ER is aspirational in my book, so M&dL is amongst the best in an ever increasing market. My favourite combo has to be bircher muesli with fresh passionfruit and a bowl of excellent flat white (bowls of coffee are common in NZ but almost unheard of in the UK). The experience is completed by the atmosphere – friendly chat whilst I sit at a rough wood table made from a Singer sewing machine table component, the glorious sunshine streaming in through the huge windows.

Love this place! I've been drinking coffee around Dalston and Stokey for many years and it's certainly an eclectic mix of folk, furnishing and fare. But Mouse & De Lotz has got it spot on. It has everything you could possibly want from a local cafe. Fantastic coffee made lovingly with attention to detail, original cakes (not a cupcake in sight thank god!), friendly service, and simple and tasteful decor. A lot of thought has gone into this place and it's kick started a mini community revolution in Shacklewell Green. A superb cafe and well worth a detour no matter where you hail from.
