The Donuts of Dayton

This post is presented in partnership with Duck Donuts. We are grateful for their support in helping us bring this resource to local families.

Fruit is great, vegetables are ok, proteins are a necessity. Food groups are as important as a balanced diet.

Ok. Let’s be real. Donuts? Powdered, frosted, cream-filled, custard-filled, jelly-filled, bacon-topped, or glazed…they get their own group.

Here’s a list of our local favorites:

Hours: 6:30am-7pm

1200 Brown Street
Dayton, OH 45409

Duck Donuts

Warm, Delicious & Made to Order

Duck Donuts was founded in Duck, North Carolina in response to a noted lack of donut presence (Say what? There are cities without donuts? But, we digress…) What resulted was a donut shop so delicious that word spread and mouths watered and more and more Duck Donuts began to open… until we, fortunately, landed one right here in our very own Dayton, Ohio.

At Duck Donuts, you can stop by and grab their featured daily donuts or request your own made-to-order. Additionally, you can snag your coffee, as well as a breakfast sandwich made with a donut (genius!) or donut ice cream sundaes! Duck Donuts can even cater your next work meeting, party or event… because isn’t everything better with donuts?

But, while the donuts alone are reason enough to swing by Duck Donuts, that isn’t even our favorite part. All of the Duck Donuts locations are encouraged to partner with an important cause in their local community through their #quackgivesback program. We LOVE when we can give ourselves another reason to feel good about eating donuts.
