These are hands down the best donuts! The melt in your mouth, sinful yumminess is not to be missed. The hard part is choosing the flavor of frosting. I'm partial to the maple. Eat them warm fresh out of the box for the ultimate experience!

These donuts are made to order and delicious. I find that I like the powdered sugar option as adding all the other toppings available makes it way to gooey. My husband enjoyed the maple glaze with bacon bits on top.

I popped in early in the am just because I wanted to try them. I haven't consumed a donut in well over 20 years. Well these were amazing. Reminded me of the donuts I got from Meeks bakery in Vienna wv as a little boy. They're long out of business but these took me back. Fresh made and the coffee... More

i had never been before, so I asked what the most popular one was which was the maple bacon donut. and then I picked a peanut butter coconut one. I would say both were amazing. the workers are so nice and very helpful.

Visited in August 2016 with my husband and teenage sons. Although crowded lines moved fast. Placed order on one side of pier and picked up finished donuts on other side where chefs were busy creating. Absolutely delicious!!! Best donuts ever. Awesome toppings to choose from. Nothing beats being able to make a donut to your own specifications. A must stop... More

It's an awesome doughnut shop where the staff is really nice, the doughnuts are really really good, and they make the doughnuts in front of you! You get to pick a flavor, a frosting, a syrup, and a topping. Then at the one I went to, you walked across the walkway, so we actually went outside, at least it was... More

This place has grown to have multiple locations, even in our hometown. Nothing is as good as having it in Duck, NC. Can't wait to consume the cinnamon sugar.

The warm doughnuts right of the fryer are to die for. The staff was very friendly and we got extra donuts because we had problems trying to decide ; because of the amazing selection

I just stop through here real quick to check it out. Thank goodness they were open in the off-season. Really cool place where you order each donut the way you want it on one side of the building and pick it up on the other side. By the time I walked over my couple of donuts were done. They were...
