In the summer the lines can be long, but nothing tastes better than a warm donut with coffee! You have the choice of several different icings including vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and maple. Toppings include nuts, coconut, sprinkles. My favorite: vanilla icing topped with coconut! Because they are served warm they still taste moist and fresh the next day. ENJOY...

On my way out of OBX I like to stock up for the ride home. The Kill Devil Hills location was exceptionally clean and organized. Love Duck Donuts. No where else offers hot donuts like this. The icing is so good and kind of melted from the heat of the donuts. Seasonal pumpkin flavor and lemon icing/raspberry glaze recommended.

Here on vacation and head about this doughnut shop. It is amazing and I strongly recommend you visit this shop. Having doughnuts made to order is a brilliant idea. Strongly recommend it.

I take all my friends and family to Duck Donuts when they come to visit. It's great you can watch your donuts be made and choose from a great variety of toppings.

You're almost there, with a location in Bridgewater. Just come a bit farther north. You are are the reason I wake up early while on vacation. Wake up, get out of bed, drive to Duck Donuts, bring back 24, and return victorious to the happiest family because now they also get Duck Donuts. So please, pretty pretty please, open up... More

The donuts at Duck Donuts are pretty good. Made as you order, so they're warm and fresh. Taste is pretty good too. Far better than Dunkin Donuts. But, there isn't much in the way of variety if that's what you're looking for. Just your standard cake donut. You can have different toppings though to spruce up your donuts. I found... More

Everyone talks about Duck Donuts. You have to try them, I got to take some back home. Well we got a dozen to try and the box was so full of grease we had to put something under it to sit it down. They are by no means great. Krispy Cream has them beat!!

For those not familiar, these are cake style donuts. You pick a base, a drizzle and additions, like sprinkles. So, you custom order each donut. Then you watch it hop out of the fryer and get "dressed," just for you! They're magic. So hot, so yummy and so perfect! We made one with maple and a salted caramel drizzle. Pretty... More
