Deus Ex Machina Cafe Harajuku

Deus Ex Machina. There’s a good chance you’ve seen the 2014 movie (Ex Machina), and you’ve probably seen the phrase. And guess what, you’re not the only one who pronounces it wrong. I’ll put a video that not only clarifies the correct pronunciation of the phrase but also shows examples of Dues Ex Machina used in movies. Long story short, it’s that part of every hero movie when all seems lost, and at the very last second, something or someone heroically saves the day. Many criticize writers who utilize Deus Ex Machina in stories and movies as it’s an “easy out” when the author has written their characters into a corner that may not be realistically escapable under their powers. But you know what, those sometimes wacky moments in movies are quite often the most dramatic and entertaining parts of movies so…. I digress. This is a review of a coffee shop in Tokyo.
If you ever find yourself in Tokyo, jet-lagged, and in desperate need of a great cup of coffee, this ultra-hip coffee shop located in the Harajuku district of Tokyo can be your last-minute savior (See what I did there?). The almond milk latte is delicious with the right amount of sweetness without being overbearingly sweet. The coffee itself was pleasant and did not taste over-roasted, which is a commonality in Japan. Now the part that surprised me, the food. Aside from the food being delicious, the dishes were aesthetically pleasing, as is much of Tokyo. I had the patty melt, and to say I was shocked as to the quality of the beef, and the bread would be an understatement. Of course, this is Japan, so of course, everything at this coffee shop was made with a high level of attention to detail.
Aside from the great coffee and food, the ambiance oozes cool. The whole vibe is vintage motorcycle themed, and it fits the space so well. There’s even a motorcycle in one of the seating areas. On the top floor, there’s a store, and on the basement floor, there is an ample space with a bar and plenty more seating. I’ve been to many cafes in Tokyo; I may have found my favorite one yet.
