While Duck Donuts has quickly expanded with locations throughout the country, you should still make a stop at its original shop to enjoy a piping hot donut while overlooking the Currituck Sound. You’ll likely find a line of kids, parents, and dogs waiting outside the ordering counter, but it moves quickly and gives you some time to formulate your ideal order. The donuts are glazed and sprinkled to order, so you can make your donuts as simple or extravagant as you’d like with dozens of topping options. If designing a donut flavor profile from scratch seems overwhelming, they also have plenty of choices with pre-selected glazes, toppings, and drizzles like maple bacon and blueberry lemon.
