Great Donuts!

Finally stopped in near the end of our trip for a couple dozen for family breakfast. Very good choice! Our favorites were the Chocolate glazed with chocolate sprinkles, Maple Bacon and Cinnamon Sugar. Would recommend the Bare as well so you can truly taste how good the donuts themselves are... read more

I've been to some really good donut places. Think the Sugar Shack Donuts place in Richmond or Alexandria, VA...so perhaps I've been spoiled. This place is definitely better than Dunkin and their merchandise and memorabilia for the area is very cute. In terms of donuts, I found them to be just okay. They're definitely greasy so be prepared for that..but... More

This was our second visit to Duck Donuts. Both times the donuts were hot, delicious and quickly prepared. They are branching out and are now in several locations.

Service good, donuts good but I like moist donuts and these are greasy but many people like that. Just not my style.

Donuts were ok, but they forgot to put bacon on two maple donuts that was supposed to include the topping. The donuts were carry-out so it wasn't corrected.

If you have kids with you at the beach, take them to Duck Donuts! With the delicious aroma of fresh donuts swirling around you, They get to watch the donuts being made! You select the glaze and topping you want. Ours are cool enough to enjoy poolside when we get back to our cottage. It's a beach vacation tradition for... More

Never having been in a Duck Donut before, I was puzzled at what seemed to be a cumbersome ordering. I thought it was a big Dunkin' . No way. Orders are processed, and donuts are made from scratch, impossible to get fresher donuts. Delicious, as was the coffee. My only criticism is the fact that you cannot get a filled... More

We saw the place when we arrived last night and decided to go this morning. The doughnuts were so warm and yummy. I enjoyed being able to pick my own topping and enjoy every bite!! My son got the maple bacon. He said it was really good except maybe a little to much bacon for his taste. Our favorite seemed... More
