Breakfast Lovers Will Adore These 10 Kingston, NY Spots

Let's get it straight: in New York, "baconeggandcheesesaltpepperketchup" is one word, and should officially be in the dictionary. That, and if any New Yorker can't recognize the acronym B.E.C.S.P.K., we have to seriously consider their New Yorker status. That's my order every Sunday.
