These donuts were a dream! Between all of the adults and children, we inhaled 3 dozen donuts. And probably could have eaten more :) Don't miss these when visiting the OBX!

As first timers, it took my in-laws and I 3 attempts at filling out the 'build your own donuts' order form before we figured it out. However, the donuts did not disappoint - the maple bacon combination was our favorite. Donuts are still good on the second day when heated in the microwave for 10 seconds. This place is definitely...

Uniquely flavored donuts, and the best fresh made donuts anywhere! So excited that one has opened in Virginia Beach. Great!

After hearing so much hype about Duck Donuts we finally had the opportunity to stop on in. Decided to grab a dozen and surprise the family at the beach house. We ordered a variety (maple bacon) was crazy delicious! As you can see from the picture they are going fast! Warm right out of the fryer and coated and finished... More

Passed this place a few times and saw the throngs of people heading in and out..had to investigate. Traffic can be a bit chaotic in this area during the busy season. You enter one storefront and then head across the walkway to pick up the goods. The Donuts are merely a delivery device (one type) for the numerous toppings that... More

Family brought back donuts this morning. They got a variety and they were delicious. I tried a bacon and one that was similar to an almond joy. Loved them both. Not sure on prices as I didn't purchase them.

We visit either this location or Corolla once per year. There's always a wait, but it's always worth it. We've loved every flavor we've tried. The coffee isn't the best -- one carafe of light roast was lukewarm and the other of dark roast was bitter -- so get the donuts to go and brew your favorite at home.

Did you read the title? Need I say more? If you like cake doughnuts this is the place to go. Fresh, hot, circles of heaven topped with whatever you like. This place is a must and has been for me and family the last two years. Get there early, there's always a line, trust me though, it's worth the wait!

I suppose the real appeal at Duck Donuts is the fact that you can go early and choose toppings, etc., but in my humble opinion, one either likes cake-like donuts (Duck Donuts fit into this category), or one prefers the yeast-risen type of donuts like Krispy Kreme. Alas, there is no Krispy-Kreme outlet in Duck so I settled on Duck... More

Some of the best doughnuts I've had and I love doughnuts! They have a form to fill out to help speed the ordering process along, as it gets very busy. We went to the kill devils location and there was no place to dine in. They have a variety of options. All the same base of a donut with choices... More
