The food is always good with a cutting edge taste.We always partake in the specials ,trusting in our server to give us a good description of the fare .Sometimes the wait is inevitable but the trade off is worth it.

I was in Kingston for a couple days and was catching up with my old med school roommate who lives in the area. We woke up Saturday morning ready to brunch and she recommended this place. Pretty much everyone I met from Kingston has good things to say about this place so I was excited to check it out! The... More

Duo was recently remodeled and continues to exude a warm, homey ambiance. Love their brunch. The food is consistently very good and a great place to relax on a weekend after walking around this historic uptown neighborhood.

We stopped here for brunch while driving north to see the changing foliage. The stellar ratings promised a wonderful experience. We encountered a 20 minute wait. The couple next to us finished their meal before we were even served. When the food finally came, my hash was so salty it was inedible. They did remove the charge from the bill... More

Upon the recommendation of a local friend we had brunch this Sunday at Duo. What a terrific find. Large portions, everything freshly made. Yummy egg dishes and pancakes catering to all dietary needs. A variety of lunch items and baked goods for the non-breakfast types and a full bar for those desiring cocktails. Will definitely return.

This is a cute place. The service was efficient and pleasant. We had a grilled chicken sandwich and it was pretty awesome. The chicken was moist and juicy and they didn't over do it on the sauce. Fries were pretty tasty. I had a chai latte as well and it was delicious. Definitely a place to check out!

Thank KingHuskey
