I had brunch here recently with friends and it was a great time! Delicious food, a wonderful atmosphere, and great service. The drinks were divine, the food was out of the world, 100% would recommend.

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.

299 Wall Street, not John St. Older restaurant decor, but very well prepared food. Duo pantry wheat toast !! Mushroom barley soup !! Smashes !!! A small, but excellent, selection of IPA drafts. Service was excellent.

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!

Nice atmosphere, friendly service, mediocre espresso drinks, but this review is about one thing: the duck, egg, and cheese on a croissant. Wow--this is just stupidly good. Absolutely worth the trip. Go now. Order the duck, egg, and cheese on a croissant. Enjoy.

Tried this newer uptown spot and really enjoyed it. Food choices were a bit different from the standard fair, and excellent in taste! Even tho' it's a bit pricey - it was definitely worth it. I hear the brunch is great, and plan to try that soon!

I am really impressed with Duo's sensitivity to flavor combinations. I've eaten there twice since I first tried it a week ago, and both times, every component of the meal was interesting, vibrantly delightful, and satisfying. In Goldilocks terms, this restaurant is just right. :)

Duo's brunch is one of the best in Kingston, Ny. The banana pudding French Toast is, to die for. This dish is one of my favorites among many others. They also have the best Hot Chocolates I've ever tasted. It's made from scratch and made to perfection. Duo has been remodeled but still gives that rustic bistro atmosphere. Would certainly... More
