I think Duck’s started as a bakery and still features freshly baked breads, cinnamon doughnuts, cookies, baby cakes and desserts made with natural, preservative free ingredients. My first knowledge of them was at a coffee shop which features their wonderful donuts. But they also serve amazing meals in their out-of-the-way funky place (if you don’t know Decatur get a map or good directions.) I love the quote from Virginia Woolf on their menu: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.” They add “or as she said on many occasions: ‘VIVE LE DUCK!”

Favorite Dish: We have tried their soups, sandwiches and pies and found all outstanding. My favorite sandwich is one they call the James Calvin, slow roasted pulled pot roast, their own horseradish sauce & Dijon mustard on walnut leek bread which is also my favorite bread. Their salads are fresh and varied and they make at least some of their own dressings. I am not sure of their hours but it is a place not to be missed for a very good, reasonably priced lunch.
