Answer:  COUGHEE SHOP

(This would be a really stinky pun, except that the smell of fresh ground coffee is just so intoxicating!  I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, I rarely go to these kind of coffee shops.  They’re usually over-priced, and the coffee generally taste burnt!  These type of quotation mark Jumbles are often difficult for a lot of you guys, but I’m sure most of the regulars got the answer fairly quickly.  There were no new clue words today, and the first two jumbles have been used before, but the two six-letter jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was masterful today.  A first class jumble!  And, the cartoon does a good job of showing a bunch of sad sack sickos.  Lots of queries for yesterday’s Jumble!  I think a lot of people had trouble with “eureka”, and then the final answer, “concentrated”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
