Fancy simple donuts

The last time we got Duck donuts they were simple. Now they are fancy and good. There are now 2 stores across from each other at a seating area. They are so busy that one is drop off and one is pick-up. I found out it is franchised now in VA! Things really change from year to year at OBX.

These donuts are so fresh and light. No greasy taste at all and the flavors are wonderful. The price is fantastic. It's hard to have just one donut...

Our first day in Duck we headed over to Duck Donuts having heard so much about it. We picked 4 different donuts and sampled them. They were good, but not what I would call gourmet donuts. If you are thinking about the new breed of donuts that have popped up around the country, this is not it. The donut itself... More

What a great donut experience. Fresh, hot and made to your order.. Many different toppings and a featured Donut of the Day. Kids love to watch how they are made. Service is relatively quick and pleasant. Always a must when in the Outer Banks!

You get to pick many permutations of donuts (sugar, glazed, sprinkles, coconut, wtc.) and they cook them for you. End result you have hot,delicious. and personalized donuts.

Duck Donuts is a definite must if your a donut lover! You actually order your donuts on one side of the plaza, then walk across and pick them up on the other side. This worked great since there were a lot of people in line, because it's a very popular place in Duck! They serve them warm, and I would... More

Don't know what the big to do is about. They are over priced and all are, basically, the same with only the "topping" changing. If you like cake, buy these.

This became our daily guilty pleasure. Our vacation rental w within walking distance of the shop in Duck so I could justify the calories by walking some of them off every morning. Donuts to order, your way. 10 different coatings, 5 toppings. Yum!

Some of the yummiest donuts you'll ever have. You get to customize them to your liking! Maple bacon were amazing! Can't pass them up.
