Yum!

If you've never had duck donuts you are totally missing out! Donuts are decorated to order, and any flavor combinations you can imagine they can make! My advice- order a dozen, ask for all seven "donuts of the day" and then ask for help coming up with more creations to fill the box. Get a knife... read more

Great place to stop for any occasion or no occasion at all. We had the strawberry, chocolate, maple, powdered sugar and cinnamon/sugar. All were very good. Took some home to the kids. They loved them.

We have visited Duck Donuts several times while in OBX. You order exactly what type you want and they prepare them while you wait.

The donuts are warm, fresh and tasty. Best sellers are the Maple and Bacon, but we had the simpler ones, which were delicious. Tried "bare", maple, glazed and cinnamon sugar. They were all wonderful. Had fun watching the friendly staff make little works of art on each donut.

Some of the best donuts I've ever had! Love their simple cake donuts. Normally I love fancy donuts, but here they make even the simplest ones perfectly.

These donuts are amazing! You can watch them make the donuts fresh and have unlimited choices for toppings! Definitely give Maple bacon a try! (Real bacon chunks...need I say more?)
