As someone who cannot refuse a donut, I am glad that these are nowhere near where I live because I wouldn't be able to control myself! The most amazing donut you'll ever have!!!

We love Duck Donuts! As part of our dessert table at our wedding we had donut holes in very cute cupcake papers which everyone loved. Our last vacation in Duck all the guys snuck out and picked up a dozen donuts without letting anyone else know they were going. We ended up with 4 dozen donuts but no one complained... More

Just loved this donut shop, it's a made to order shop, and the donuts are fresh out of the cooker that you can watch as they make them. Tons of toppings and additions, sprinkles, coconut, nuts, great place to take the kids for a inexpensive treat, at 1.20 a donut how can you go wrong.

Before our visit to Duck, we were given the long list of "musts" by friends. The common denominator was Duck Donuts. We went around 10:00 AM, so missed the lines we had been warned about. Certainly a variety to choose from. But did I miss the yeast donuts on the menu? So you place your order then walk across this... More

The donuts were delicious but they sure could use more seating! There seems to be a fair amount of open floor space where small tables and chairs could be put. We had to eat ours in the car and it was not like it was super busy. Get more chairs please.

Since openning on December 18, 2014, I have visited the Wrenn Plaza location in Cary, North Carolina on 3 separate occassions. The first 2 visits I was very pleased to receive hot, fresh donuts...simply delicious! Yesterday, December 31st was quite a bit different. I received donuts that were not hot but rather taken from a heat lamp and somewhat warm... More

Every time I come to the OBX (Waves) I have to drive north just to get a box of Duck Donuts. I have never tasted a donut so fresh as these. It's made to order so every donut is fresh. Very excited for my visit out there next week! You might say I'd drive 500mi for these donuts, because I... More

Nice warm donuts to start your day! Plenty of varieties to choose from. Cinnamon sugar my fave. Pick some up when in town.

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 location in... 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!
