Custom designed hot donuts-- just the way you ask for them. Even the plain glazed are terrific, but the special ones are super. Made quick.

We have been going to the OBX for about 25 years, and have never gone to Duck Donuts. I know right? Well we usually stay at the end of Rte 12 North out on the 4-wheel drive beach and don't wander too far out of Corolla. Even people at home couldn't believe we had never been. So this trip was...

Whenever you come to the Outer Banks you must stop at least once at Duck Donuts! The donuts are being made right in front of you and topped according to your order. They are warm and fresh and there are topping choices for every member of the family. In October they had a special pumpkin donut that was incredible! Luckily... More

Anytime we are near Duck we always go to Duck Doughnots. They melt in your mouth and aren't overly sweet. The pumpkin pie was especially good.

You're way up at the northern end of the Outer Banks. You're a little bit hungry for something sweet. So, here's the real deal: The Duck Donuts shop in Duck is located right on the famous boardwalk, where you can sit and enjoy your donuts, and then, walk them off with a long stroll along the waterfront! The shop where... More

We first tried Duck Donuts in September and they are amazing! We had an issue with a dozen donuts that we had delivered to our home. I sent them an email late at night and had a call from the regional manager before 9:30 the next morning. They immediately offered us a refund on our order because of the issue.... More

though my better half really liked the donuts (shes probably addicted to them), to me they were just a regular donut. had premade donuts that they poured different type of topping on, none of which were that unique. give me a break, bacon and maple. wow thats earth shattering. btw service wasnt that good

Go for it. Order across the boardwalk with a cup of java and step across to the kitchen. Always hot and ready to go with your cup of coffee and a Sound view.

The best doughnuts in Duck! They are made while you wait and they are warm when you eat them. DELICIOUS!
