An odd one this week…..

There is a small town in California called Yreka. There is a little bakery in town that opens everyday at 8.30am and closes at 5.30pm. The bakery is world famous. Why?

I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.

  1. Not really a puzzle. I got ‘it’ in a few seconds, but thought that there must be more than that or it wasn’t really a puzzle. There isn’t!

  2. Nope. Couldn’t see anything to figure out, knew Yreka is a real town, resorted to Wiki.

    Should have waited until after coffee.

    1. I also navigated straight to Wiki, found the relevant section in the article, then groaned upon realisation. I should have realised upon discovery there was nothing significant / unusual about the geography of the town that there’d be wordplay involved in the answer…

  3. According to Mr Wikipedia the bakery shut down sometime after 1974. Which goes to show that being world famous isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

  4. Being a palindrome wouldn’t make it world famous (the actual one never was). Also, it isn’t implied that the bakery is named after the town, most aren’t, thus the puzzle doesn’t work. Admit that you ran out of puzzles a long time ago and quit this charade.

    1. Seka is a common girl’s name in Serbia, Croatia, etc. Someone of that name should go to somewhere Anglophone and set up a patisserie.

  5. As ever, please do NOT post your answers, but do say if you think you have solved the puzzle and how long it took. Solution on Monday!!!!
    Yea! I agree with you Duncan!

  6. Another delightful, simple puzzle, thanks Richard ๐Ÿ˜€ The answer was there instantly, but it’s still a delightful little brain workout, so thanks for that ๐Ÿ™‚
