An annual required visit. Best doughnuts ever! And that's coming from a girl that used to say nothing could beat a hot Krispy Kreme.

Maple bacon donut. That's all that's needed to be said. It is delicious, fast and coffee was good. It's a must stop for us when in the Outer Banks

this is a different donut place than i have ever seen but they were very good if a little messy. you order and go across to another building and then they literally make your donut to order. it doesnt get any fresher than that. its strictly a donut place other then coffee and some other drinks.

I've heard about Duck Donuts for years. Finally got a chance to eat at the one in Kill Devil Hills. We missed out on our first try, didn't realize that they close after lunch.

This donut shop was recommended by a friend who ate here everyday, but we took the kids for one novelty trip so they can say they have been. We also recently saw one opened on HHI, but did not stop. They give you the donut option, then the glaze, and then the topping you would like on it. They make... More

Love these doughnuts. Every one is made to order served warm. Try the chocolate iced with chopped peanuts or the maple iced with bacon bits. Go ahead and get the full dozen and take a few home with you.

Duck Donuts is a place like none other where you can watch your donut made in front of you. A great place to take the kids!

I have heard about Duck Donuts but never stopped. We went in shortly after they opened and they were busy but got everyone through the line very quickly. The donuts are made right in front you and they were yummy! Great way to start our day!
