Yummy Donuts

I went here after friends raved about it while we were in Corolla Beach, NC. I loved that you could customize them to how you like donuts, and that they're hot when you first get them. They're still really good later that day too, but ours didn't last more than a day before we ate them all. The... read more

They are messing, they are probably a heart attack in the making and I love them. I wanted to weep when we drove up and they were already closed. Check the hours so you, too won't be disappointed. Then, think up your fav donut and you get to order it!

Unique experience to get hot made to order donuts. You start with hot vanilla cake donut and add glazes, icings and or toppings of your choice.

The donuts are made to order and served warm. Very light. Two or three donuts per person is just right.

Ate here on our first morning in the outer banks, ordered a half dozen of different types and a double chocolate muffin. Was fun to watch the donuts go through the line being made to order. The best donut was the cinnamon sugar, the bacon maple was recommended to us by the cashier, but it turned out to be our... More

Watch your donuts being made then select your glaze and toppings... design a dozen different donuts (too many options to decide)... 5 seconds in the microwave and they're just as good the next day (don't try that with a DD)... a must try on the Outer Banks!

Even if you're watching your weight, just forget it, get a couple of Duck Donuts. You can run on the beach later. The vanilla/coconut and french toast are a few of my favorites,

Freshly made and to order. Wish we had these on the first day of our visit. Try out the chocolate and bacon!

Duck donuts was a unique experience on the Outer Banks, NC! You got to watch and wait until yours were ready. After I recovered from the heat, they were very good. All I could successfully handle was one. Otherwise, it would be way too much! I recommend caution against diving in to eat the wonderful, tasty looking donut! I could... More

We heard and read about Duck Donuts so of course we had to stop and get one when we went through Duck. We watched them make them fresh which made them even better. I definitely would stop there again. The girl that waited on us was not the friendliest but maybe she was not having a good day! Smiles go... More
