The Harwood Cafe

We’ve made some exciting changes to the lunch program at Escuela del Sol via the Harwood Café! Mr. Michael Chavez Liberman, who you might recognize as Owen, Dane, Benji and Wynn’s dad, and Mr. Ramón are working together to create a delicious, nutrious and sustainable menu of snacks and hot lunches for the coming year.

Our awesome team is working on menus that will keep old favorites as well as bringing in some new and exciting dishes. The lunch program will have an emphasis on fresh, sustainable food as well as locally grown produce. Albuquerque has a long farming tradition and we are excited to be part of it!
Mr. Michael and Mr. Ramón have also re-opened the Harwood Café for adults! Get a made-to-order breakfast burrito, a smoothie or a bakery item. There are also snacks, and come back for lunch or to get a take-home dinner!

Mr. Michael worked as the sous chef at the Prairie Star for three years; he is excited to be back in the kitchen. Mr. Ramón has been working in the Harwood Cafe since he took over the lunch program in 2017.
