Angelo's is a greasy spoon cafe based just off London's bustling Trafalgar Square, and is home to a hybrid of surreal comedy characters whose lives intertwine.

Angelo is the widowed, Italian café owner who loves the Queen Mum, but has an intolerance for foreigners, especially tourists that spend all day sitting around with just 'one bloody cup of coffee'.

Angelo is un-ably assisted by his daughter Maria, an aspiring X Factor contestant who thinks that London is one of the few places on Earth where the talentless can live out their dreams. She is shadowed by her best friend Alicia who, like all good best mates, constantly undermines Maria and tries to steal her boyfriend Mickey.

Other characters include Kris, a living statue and mime artist covered head-to-toe in gold, who has a crush on Maria, and mini-cab driver Shelley, a nymphomaniac 'virgin'.

Then there's local bobbies Dave and Karen, a married couple who are having trouble conceiving: she's beginning to wonder if Dave's sleazy brother Kevin is up to the task...
