location: The Coffee Stand
It appears that they also added the mural and mailbox seen behind Debra, plus the tables, of course.
Here is a Google StreetView of the lot - behind the gate (click on it to see the panorama):
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. In previous seasons, I've
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes,
using clues from the various scenes. By the 6th season, though,
I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know
in advance when something was about to film there.
This time, I found it
easily via the scene's background:
As you can see in the screencap above, one of the stores seen behind
Debra and Angel, across the street, has a sign reading "Rock Factory",
in a distinctive font. (Another store nearby had a name that
began with "YOON".)
So I simply Googled for "Rock Factory" and
found it at 5627 Figueroa (near a store named "Yoona"). Once in Highland Park, I knew they
had filmed at the Moda store there for the barber shop scene, so I simply
rotated the StreetView around from the Rock Factory, and sure enough, there was Moda and that narrow parking lot.
