For people missing Donut World in south Greensboro, there’s a ray of hope.
Sun Rays Donuts has opened in the same spot Donut World occupied at 3027 Randleman Road.
The shop offers more than a dozen varieties of glazed and specialty doughnuts, including chocolate, strawberry, coconut, bacon-maple, and jelly- and creme-filled options.
Or try a cinnamon roll, bear claw, apple fritter or “Pine Cone,” which looks like a fritter but is covered in cinnamon.
Seasonal doughnuts, such as pumpkin spice, will pop up in the display case on occasion.
A dozen glazed doughnuts are $8.99 and a half-dozen are $4.99.
The shop also offers breakfast sandwiches that include croissants ($2.99) or biscuits ($2.59) stuffed with egg and cheese and choice of meat, and kolaches, which are sort of like an oversized pig in a blanket, stuffed with boudin-style sausage ($2.79) or sausage and cheese ($1.99)
Shop hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The telephone number is 336-763-0961.

Triad’s first food hall in High Point gets a name
The Triad’s first food hall will open next summer in The Outfields development at 275 N. Elm St. next to the High Point Rockers stadium in High Point.
It will be called Stock + Grain Assembly, and it is accepting vendor proposals.
The 12,000-square-foot marketplace, a project of Baltimore-based developer CANAdev, will feature 10 vendors, ample seating and a large outdoor space.
The Outfields is being developed by Elliott Sidewalk Communities.
The new development adjoins a future plaza, BB&T Point ballpark and downtown High Point.
“Stock + Grain Assembly will be a destination for local makers,” Mike Morris, the principal owner of CANAdev, said in a news release.
“Vendors will offer a range of products, from coffee and breakfast to pizza and wine. We’re excited for this opportunity to highlight High Point’s unique culture and history, as we’ve done for the many communities that host our other food hall projects nationwide.”
CANAdev has 16 food hall projects either completed or in the works, including in Baltimore, Boston, New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, Philadelphia and Washington.
CANAdev is accepting proposals from food and beverage companies interested in vending in the food hall.
