Angelo’s is a café in the heart of London, a short stroll from the tourist Mecca of Trafalgar Square, the grandeur of Whitehall and the sex shops of sleazy Soho. This unique geographical location means it is also the meeting place for a whole motley crew of diverse, deftly drawn characters from the imagination of writer Sharon Horgan (Pulling, Annually Retentive).
Heading up this unlikely gang is proprietor Angelo (played by Steve Brody), an Italian immigrant and proud Anglophile, who wouldn’t serve up any ‘foreign muck’ in his establishment. Angelo always provides a warm welcome to his patrons, just as long as they don’t spend all day sitting over one bloody coffee. He is ably assisted by his daughter Maria (Shelley Longworth), who far from being a willing waitress, spends most of her day dreaming of being discovered by Simon Cowell and leaving this dump behind her. Never far behind is best friend Alicia (Alice Lowe) who, like all true companions, constantly undermines Maria and tries to steal her boyfriends.
Then there’s Karen and Dave (Sharon Horgan and Paul Garner), the local police community officers who seem to spend more time discussing their marital problems than doing any actual police work. Other regular fixtures include: Shelley (Miranda Hart), the man-hungry mini cab driver who is saving her virginity for Mr Right, even if he’s taken out a restraining order against her; Kris (Simon Farnaby), a classically trained out of work actor who dresses as a gold robot and mimes for pennies from tourists; and Russell (Kim Wall), who spends every day in Angelo’s searching for a new employer before his wife finds out that he has been made redundant from his last job.
