    a shop for baking doughnuts

    Hello.

    What's the English for a shop where freshly baked finger-licking good donuts are made.

    Thank you.

    Re: a shop for baking doughnuts

    A bakery usually makes bread and other things in addition to sweets. A place that just sells doughnuts (and similar sweets) can be called a "doughnut shop."

    In AmE we usually call a place like that a donut shop. "Finger-licking good" is a matter of taste, though.

    This is a place where dough nuts are made while you wait.

    The far superior donut-like pastry in New Orleans, Louisiana, is called a beignet. Beignets are always made to order. They're sold in cafés, pastry shops, and beignet stands.

    It's probably also trade-marked for something else.
