Meet one of downtown Glendale's news business additions!
Kathy loves coffee. Rhonda loves tea.
Itís a perfect combination. 
To start their business 3 years ago they became vendors at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market.
Kathy and Rhonda tell us: "Starting with a tent, 2 tables, a couple of coffee pots and some really fine coffee, we grew." they continue: We added fine loose leaf teas, and we grew some more. Two years later, we're still growing strong and looking forward to new ventures."
Their latest venture.... "Coffee and Tea Express"  at  Promenade at Palmaire    5835 W. Palmaire Avenue located in the retail area of the new parking garage in Catlin Court is a great addition to the  interesting shops and restaurants in Historic Glendale.
If you are stuck in Phoenix over the weekend and have a craving for the good they offer stop in at Phoenix Public Market at the southeast corner of Central and McKinley every Saturday from 8 to Noon. (map)
Rhonda submitted some of the wheat Tortillas that are locally made and  are all natural  and some Green Salsa for testing in the Glendale Daily Planet Kitchen .
In the Cafe there are many specialty food items , The quality is outstanding and  it is a joy to be able to  grab some goodies to take home when you are visiting there,  Many of the specialty  food items also make fine gifts and the lines offered will be expanded.  The all natural wheat Tortillas that are locally made and the  Green Salsa is OUTSTANDING!
