Mathilde’s Café at the Heaton Cooper Studio, Grasmere, may well be named after Mathilde Marie Valentinsen, a gentle Norwegian country girl who stole the heart of acclaimed artist Alfred Heaton Cooper, but there is more to this café than a simple love story. As you will discover the café reflects a deeply rooted shared culture, a culture of simple, tasty food done well.
