The Peak's Cafe Deco will serve its final Sunday brunch on July 24. before closing up shop forever, concluding a 22-year stint at the top of the city.

The restaurant has been a landmark of the city for the past two decades, although in recent years increasing competition and rising rents have made it harder for the venue to get by. The restuarant was finally felled by the Peak Galleria mall's owners Hang Lung Properties, who are planning to renovate the building. 

Assistant operations manager Matthew Chiu has worked at the restaurant since its very day in business. "In a blink of an eye, I have worked in Cafe Deco for 22 years. I still remember every story like it just happened yesterday," he told HK Magazine. 

Can't make it up there one last time? The restaurant will make a come-back at The One in Tsim Sha Tsui in September. Cafe Deco's new location will take over the entire 20th floor of the mall, offering a different, but still striking, panoramic skyline of the city. Much of the restaurant's art deco décor, as well as their loyal staff of 22 years, will be kept and transferred to the new location, but we'll have to stay tuned to see if the restaurant's essence can be brought across the harbor.
