“Sift flour into a large bowl”


Sift is inspired by a love of coffee shops. Creating a welcoming space is so important to us, and everything in the shop, from the menu to the furniture to them items for sale, has been carefully selected by us, for you to enjoy.

Everything is made in house, or locally sourced, using the best local produce, to create the best food we can.

Sift is housed in a Grade II listed former bank, complete with its own vault, in the beautiful market town of Otley, Leeds.

We do celebration cakes to order. A full range of flavours are available, from chocolate fudge to red velvet. Vegan and gluten free cakes are also available to order. If you’re interested in a cake for a special occasion, please send us an e-mail to rosie@siftotley.com. Prices start from £25.

Our Menu


The upstairs gallery space is currently under development. Once the space is open we hope to host workshops and classes, as well as exhibit work from exciting local and national artists. If you are interested in hosting a class, workshop, or having your work displayed on a sale or return basis, please send us an e-mail at rosie@siftotley.com, with full information and photographs of your work. Please be aware that dependent on interest, we may not be able to exhibit all work shown to us, and selections will be made dependent on the quality and style of the work submitted.
We currently stock a curated selection of prints. greeting cards, gift wrap and independent magazines in the shop. Please pop in to see what we have, as stock can move quickly and we can’t guarantee availability of popular titles.
