"Ducky's is about comfort," explained Douglas. "The whole restaurant itself was designed solely on my childhood, including the menu and the interior. It was a place that could take me home."
While initially more takeout focused due to COVID-19 restrictions, Douglas recently launched an expanded menu and dine-in service.
Ducky's Diner is located at 161 Railway St. in Nipigon in northwestern Ontario.
