Food was outstanding and the soup was clam and mushroom, The service was excellent. Did not do the desserts because the Club sandwich was just enough

The food is all prepared after you order, and with only two staff in the back, it can be a wait before your order is ready, but the sandwiches and soups are really yummy.

Limbertwig serves a delicious lunch.

Food is OK, but the prices are out of range for what you get and portion size. It is frequented by folks while downtown. I have eaten there several times but always when meeting a friend. Great menu; good selection; but prices are too high for me.

It was pouring rain and we were looking for a place to eat lunch that had a parking spot nearby. We were in town for the NC Mainstreet conference and stumbled upon Limbertwig. What a great thing. Only open for lunch Monday through Friday but well worth the time. You must order at the back and your food is brought... More

The soups at Limbertwig are all wonderful! The sandwiches and wraps are also fresh and very tasty! Terrance and the staff are friendly and helpful with deciding between all the delicious choices. My favorite is the tuna wrap with honey mustard dip.

Truly not much on atmosphere here but you won't care after eating. Nothing fancy about the meal but it's made from fresh ingredients and is always good. You feel good about eating their food, you know it's healthier than other options around and your tummy thanks you too! Their famous for their tomato basil soup with good reason. I'm stuck... More

Daily soups are all homemade and vary; selection of sandwiches unlimited and always fresh ingredients used. Salads are prepared per order. Current owner is changing décor to make more relaxing but even so, the food is worth a short wait. Limited hours are 11am to 3 pm M-F

Service is slow but if you're not in a hurry it's worth the wait. Excellent soup! If I'm craving soup I head here. I have tried a variety of the soups, wraps, and sandwiches and everything has been delicious. It's a hidden gem in downtown Morganton. Very plain décor, but friendly inviting staff make up for it.
