Almost next door to Bar Italia, A. Angelucci is a specialty coffee bean shop made famous in a track from the first Dire Straits album - Wild West End. They only sell the raw product but if you want to sample the coffee go along to Bar Italia and ask for a Mokital, Angelucci's secret coffee blend.
Wild West End by Dire Straits
"Stepping out to Angelucci's for my coffee beans
Checking out the movies and the magazines
Waitress she watches me crossing from the barocco bar
I'm getting a pickup for my steel guitar
I saw you walking out shaftesbury avenue
Excuse me talking I wanna marry you
This is seventh heaven street to me
Don't be so proud
You're just another angel in the crowd
And I'm walking in the wild west end
Walking with your wild best friend
And my conductress on the number nineteen
She was a homey
Pink toenails and hands all dirty with money
Greasy hair easy smile
Made me feel nineteen for a while
And I went down to chinatown
In the backroom it's man's world
All the money go down
Duck inside the doorway gotta duck duck to eat
Right now fells alright now
You and me we can't beat
And a gogo dancing girl yes I saw her
The deejay he say here's Mandy for ya
I feel alright to see her
But she's paid to do that stuff
She's dancing high I move on by
The close ups can get rough
When you're walking in the wild west end"
