Excellent food and a hip but relaxed space. Mostly a tapas style menu. Little pricier than I would have thought / liked, but I was not disappointed by the experience.

About the restaurant
We want to bring a different type of fun to the corner of Manchester and McKnight. COFFEE, MIMOSAS, BLOODY MARYS AND GOOD FOOD
Locally Sourced / Crafted for Fun.
The owners of The Mud House, have opened a new breakfast-and-lunch spot next to Hangar in Rock Hill. Momo’s chef is Jesse Mills, a former sous chef at the Tavern and at Hangar. Both Mills and the Sedlaks believe in using the highest quality products throughout the menu, such as farm eggs from Buttonwood Farms. That’s what sets Momo’s aside from other breakfast places. You can see and taste the difference, both in the standard dishes and on the sandwiches containing eggs.

The Momo restaurant’s tagline is “coffee-champagne-kitchen,” which hallmarks of a fun brunch. You can grab a regular breakfast or lunch, or you can crank it up with brunch-based cocktails. Momo is about coffee and cocktails and just happens to serve really good food. The restaurant is open is open for breakfast and lunch daily from 7 a.

Father's Day breakfast and it was a hit. Will definitely be returning. Though we didn't sit outside, they have a nice large patio area. Can't wait to sit outside in the cooler weather. I like the simplicity of the menu as well! Food was delicious!

Good wood-fired pizza and nice selection of beer. The pizza had a very good crust and was nicely charred. There were many beer to choose from, mostly local choices, including several IPA's, which I prefer. Service was great.

Coffeehouse by day, winehouse by night. We specialize in fresh healthy and creative eats and pride ourselves on being preservative free.

Reservations are for evenings only at this time. Daytime is open seating (first come, first serve). We operate on separate daytime and evening menus, but they do have some overlapping items.

The food was outstanding and quite reasonably priced. We had a tartine to start and two small plates - perfect for our appetites. And.our server, Ashley, was remarkable. Vivacious and charming and enthusiastic - she made a lovely anniversary dinner truly remarkable.
