Cheesecake in a Courthouse
While home in Dornoch for the Easter holidays, the Carnegie Tea Room and Deli is a lovely place to meet up with friends. Originally the first floor of the Dornoch Courthouse, the Tea Room and Deli is part of the new retail centre, renamed the Carnegie Courthouse. Now, the space on this floor is used to serve teas, coffees, cakes, and a wide variety of savoury foods.

Dominating the decorations in the Tea Room is a mural representing different Dornoch personalities. This ranges from locals, such as the Cathedral's minister and the high school's former headmaster, to Madonna (who christened her baby in the town), and Janet Horne, the last alleged witch to be executed in the British Isles.

I ordered the smoked salmon, roasted cherry tomato and crème fraiche wrap with seasoned chips, and my friends had the pulled pork and goats cheese sandwiches respectively. All of us really enjoyed our meals and found them very filling.

However, the chocolate cheesecake looked so good that two of us managed to keep eating anyway. The cheesecake was completely amazing. Beautifully presented, it also tasted wonderful, with the chocolate filling thick and creamy without being too rich.

The room is bright and spacious, and the service impeccable. Overall the Carnegie Tea Room and Deli is certainly worth a visit if you find yourself in Dornoch square.
