At the intersection of Lincoln and Venice Boulevards, Deus Ex Machina is effortlessly cool in its indoor-outdoor combo café and motorcycle cum surf shop. This Australian-born fuel factory fills the coffee cups of its patrons, offering light fare and ample shared tables. Take a break from your latte and screenplay to test out motorcycle helmets or better yet, your own Deus-brand motorcycle or surfboard for the freeway and those Pacific swells. Did I mention they produce vinyl too?
