Normally laid-back Trisha is wrong-footed when she comes face to face with a very unexpected visitor.

Further details

Normally laid-back Trisha is wrong-footed when she comes face to face with a very unexpected visitor, whilst Clare drives herself (and everybody else for that matter) mad with her obsessive decorating, induced by her increasing anxiety about her husband's uncharacteristic behaviour.

It would appear that even though their new Edinburgh cafe business is growing, one sister's life is definitely unravelling while the others may be starting to knit together again, so long as she can keep her head...

Meanwhile temperamental opera-loving Polish chef, Krzysztof doesn't know whether he is coming or going with Trisha and is being driven to distraction (and drink) whilst whacky teenage waitress, Lizzie is unusually subdued and secretive after a rubbish night out.

Is the 'Cafe Culture' makeover really going to make a difference or are they all just, in their own ways, painting over the literal and metaphorical cracks?
