Delicious Hot Donuts

We enjoyed an off-season vacation in Duck recently. We stayed in nearby Corolla last year so were anxiously awaiting our morning donuts. At this time of year, they were not open Monday or Tuesday. We had donuts every morning Wednesday thru Sunday. They make them to order and they are still warm... read more

Really, really good and you can get them with whatever toppings you like or just eat a plain glaze - nothing plain about that! I think worth the calories!

Of course we had to experience the legendary Duck Donuts while in the area! The donuts were hot, fresh and yummy. They're not the best donuts I've ever had but they're certainly worthy of the experience. You'll need a fork and a knife to eat these piping hot, sticky, sugary delights!

Plain glazed. Maple glazed. Peanut coated. Couldn't have been yummier. End of story. They want me to write more, but what it is is a donut joint. What more is there to say? Really really really really really really really really really really good donuts. Further your deponent sayeth not.

We went to Duck Donuts on our first morning in Duck. The donuts are made to order and are nice and warm. It's a nice way to get your morning started. Friendly staff too!!

I wasn't sure if these donuts would be my cup of tea since I'm not a big fan of cake donuts. I was pleasantly surprised that the cinnamon-sugar donut served made to order and warm was excellent! Might try something new next time but it will be along with this one!

Oh my goodness! What a popular place! I had to eat my lemon glazed donut with a fork. It was soft and warm with lemon sauce dripping down the sides. Delicious!

We went and got 6 different flavors of donuts. I really don't know what all of the hype is about. They were warm, and that was nice, but other than that there really wasn't much special about them. Oh and there was a new employee who was being trained and one of the other employees treated her VERY rudely in... More
