Sift is a fully vegetarian cafe & bakery in Otley. we serve a small but delicious all-day vegetarian menu, with lots of vegan options.



Sift is a fully vegetarian cafe & bakery located in the beautiful market town of Otley, West Yorkshire, about 10 miles from Leeds and 8 miles from Bradford. We are located in a beautiful bright green Grade II listed former bank, complete with our very own vault!

We make almost everything in-house, from our soups and beans to all our cakes, which are baked upstairs daily by our small team of bakers. If we can’t make it ourselves, we source it locally from the best suppliers. Our bread is from Bondgate Bakery and all our fruit, vegetables and eggs are from Simon & Becky on the market.

We use the highest quality ingredients for all our baking, including Doves Farm British flour, Callebaut Belgian chocolate, and local butter, milk and eggs.


We are a fully vegetarian cafe, and try be as accommodating as we can for other dietary needs. We always have a good selection of vegan and gluten free cakes, and lots of vegan options on the menu. Gluten free bread is available but unfortunately we cannot guarantee we’re suitable for coeliac sufferers due to our small kitchen space and the high risk of cross contamination. Please send us an email if you have any questions.

For the latest information on our opening hours, please see our Instagram page, or send us a message or email to check.

Our Menu

The menu is subject to slight change, and not all items may be available at all times.

Gluten free bread is available on request, and we do our upmost to avoid any cross contamination, however we cannot guarantee our food will be suitable for those with coeliac disease due to our small kitchen space and the possibility of cross contamination. We take all allergies and dietary issues very seriously. Please e-mail rosie@siftotley.com if you have any questions.

Celebration Cakes

We only accept orders via e-mail to rosie@siftotley.com. Please include the flavour, size, date required, and any dietary or allergen information we may need.

Please remember we are a very small team and slots for celebration cakes are limited, so as much advance notice as possible is appreciated. Sunday is the cut off for orders for the coming week.

All cakes come as a standard design as detailed in the description, unless specifically requested otherwise. The list is a curated selection of our favourite cakes, as there are obviously thousands of cake options available. If you want something not listed please e-mail Rosie on rosie@siftotley.com to discuss your ideas.
