They where awesome! We picked out the toppings, they were warm and delicious! The only negative was that they weren't open every day.

DO NOT pass up these donuts. 5 years ago we stopped in for the first time - turned around and walked out because all they had were cake donuts. This past week we visited and learned that you pick your glaze and your topping and they are made to order - hot out of the cooker. These are THE BEST... More

Fresh, made to order donuts right in front of you! You choose your coating, toppings and drizzle. Some of my favorites are maple bacon, peanut butter with peanuts and salted caramel drizzle, chocolate with oreo and hot fudge drizzle and blueberry with coconut and raspberry drizzle. They are all wonderful! Service is always awesome too!

Had to make a stop at the original Duck Donuts and made it prior to closing (off season 1pm). We had a wonderful assorted dozen and the new pumpkin pie was awesome.

I'm not even a donut fan, but having read reviews on how great were these donuts, I had to try. And am I so glad I did. And a unique ordering experience, you order in one shop, walk across the boardwalk and pick up your creation. All the donuts are vanilla cream cake donuts, but very light and fluffy cake... More
