Best Sweet Treat Morning!

So thrilled that the vacation dads made this stop for some sweet yummy morning treats. The biggest hit for our group was the bacon topped donuts! We went back later in the week for another fix. Great service, friendly staff & convenient hours. This is a must stop for a sweet treat!

Duck Donuts is a very small place with coffee and donuts made to order. There is not a huge selection or variety, but you can choose from several icings and toppings. The donuts are delicious, but you really have to eat on the go because there are only a few outdoor tables. The location is very pretty on the sound... More

There is not much to say other than the donuts are worth the wait to order and then pick up. Once your order is placed, the donuts are ready in minutes. They are freshly made to order and are delicious.

I have read so many great things about this place, we just had to stop by before returning home this week. The young lady with long blonde hair,stay clear of her, I believe her name was Mercedes. She was so disrespectful to my kids! Please try not to roll your eyes & huff/puff because my kids kept changing their mind.... More

A donut with some sort of sugar on it is pretty much the same everywhere, right? Wrong! This place puts a whole new spin on tasty. Creative varieties and always fresh. Bacon on a donut...simply genius. Yes, there will be a line. it's worth the wait.

Our family pretty much ordered 1 of everything, even the maple with bacon! Great variety, hot & fresh. I'd advise to get there early, open at 6:30. We will be back next year.

You go into one building to order & another to pick up a few minutes later. They are assembled with requested toppings during that time. Most customers used order forms for more complex orders. Cake donuts, not the usual. Sweetness tasted more like maple syrup than sugar. Bacon was most unusual topping. Chocolate covered were especially good. Overall excellent quality.... More

Love the new addition to order. Lines went very quick. Chocolate maple bacon was excellent. Chocolate coconut and peanuts is my favorite.

We discovered Duck donuts on our last visit to Duck and had to get up early to avoid the lines for our donuts. They are very tasty and warm when you get them. We enjoy our Duck donut sitting on the boardwalk looking out on the water. This is part of our Duck experience.

I have never been a fan of cake donuts so when my sister grabbed some for breakfast while we were on vacation I wasn't as excited about it as she was. I tried them and OMG! the best donut I have ever had. Served warm and made to order, needless to say I was hooked after one bite. Try the... More
