Come and enjoy the quiet tropical surrounds away from the traffic and hustle and bustle. It’s worth making this sojourn across Ishmael Road. A very quaint cafe. Adam the Barista is great!

walk in and try not to think you've gone to a special place. Incredible creations and fresh made delectables. Forget your diet, don't worry about how the bathing suit fits, you only live once and this is the place to splurge and indulge.

We sat outside enjoying each other and our treats. Fun and relaxing. One family member brought their dog which is why we sat outside. Sweet Duck had a lot of variety items.

This is the only ice cream shop open after 7 in Duck (open until 9). My family and I arrived here at 9:00 on the dot and received excellent service. Salted caramel and moose tracks are my two recommendations!

My family enjoyed some delicious homemade gelato. It was hard narrowing down what to get because all of the pastries, truffles, and other desserts looked delicious. We will make sure to stop here often on future vacations.

I always make the trek to the Scarborough Faire shopping emporium - it's my favorite. Open air & cute little shops to find some fun stuff. This year we wandered into the Sweet Duck and discovered their amazing taffy selection! Bacon Wrapped maple? Chili Mango?...More
