Located in Tuxedo Festival retail center in Buckhead, Ga., Duck Donuts offers a warm taste of homemade donuts with seemingly endless combinations of flavors. With bright pink cabinets covered in rubber ducks beneath light blue walls, the store creates a kid-friendly aura of joyful donut eating.
When I walked into the medium-sized shop, the enthusiastic employees greeted me instantly to help me start my donut-customization journey. While its best-selling flavors are maple icing with chopped bacon, s’mores, and blueberry pancake, the store also offers a build-your-own option, where you pick your desired donut flavor, coat it with frosting, top it, and drizzle it with an additional flavor, like marshmallow. Unlike donuts from national chains, every donut at this family run shop is made fresh to order for customers.
