Duck Donuts is a place you cannot miss if you are in the OBX! And this place did not disappoint. We stayed at the Hilton Garden across the street, and this is where we all came in for breakfast.

We had to try the Maple Bacon donuts. As bizarre as it sounds, they tastes great - especially after a morning workout. Nice people work there, too.

NO LINE!!! These donuts are the BOMB. They are light as well as a little crunchy around the edges. Still warm. I got my favorite...chocolate.

Visited in July on vacation. The Southern Belle in our family insisted we try these donuts. I mean she was relentless. Wow was she right! The Maple Bacon was my favorite combo.

Duck Donuts is a must stop while on vacation. Very streamlined process that is efficient. I have never had anything "incorrect" with my order and the Donuts are wonderful.

Duck Donuts are by far the best Donuts around! Always fresh & you can fix them to your individual taste.

I have a Gluten intolerance, but that did not stop me from sampling a nibble of the hot cinnamon donuts, my family indulges in a few custom order hot donuts every trip. Their flavored coffee is excellent too!

We go every year when we visit. Kids love choosing toppings. Had Pumpkin Pie and it was delicious. Good amount of toppings.
