Reviewed 5 May 2014

These are the best donuts anywhere. They are always fresh and warm. My family gets these every morning during our week stay.

“Best Donut Ever!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We got there when it opened - so cool to see them make the donuts. Super fresh, moist, and amazing donuts. You can get any topping you want - made just for you. We ate a lot of donuts on our trip!!

“Melt In Your Mouth Goodness!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

You have never experienced a doughnut until you've had a fresh-from-the-fryer Duck Donut! I have to admit I wasn't convinced this was going to live up to the hype but wanted to appease my boyfriend. I thought a doughnut is a doughnut. Well, I was wrong and am happy I was proven wrong! You get a cake-like texture that is warm, light, and fixed to your liking right in front of your eyes! The chocolate coconut is the best in my opinion. The chocolate is almost fudge like in consistency allowing for optimal topping adhesion. The strawberry icing is a very light flavor & consistency to the point of almost confusing it was the vanilla. No matter what toppings you pick this is a MUST experience while visiting OBX!

“Nothing like a warm, fresh donut”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It's no wonder why this place is a huge hit. The donuts are made right in front of you. It's like fast food, but quality. The donuts are as soft and moist as a cake. They let you pick from several icing and toppings to put on it. Chocolate and Coconut were really good.
