Sift is a fully vegetarian cafe & bakery in Otley. We are currently open Tuesday – Sunday, please check our opening hours below.


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 all of our beautiful cakes in-house, from the best possible ingredients, including local butter and eggs, Callebaut chocolate, and British sugar where possible. Bread is also sourced locally, from Bondgate Bakery here in Otley, and we get all our fruit, veg and eggs from Simon & Becky on the market.

We also have a very carefully curated selection of art prints, cards and gift items for sale in the shop. We are not currently accepting submissions for new items to sell or display.

During the pandemic our hours, days and seating has been very subject to change, we are working hard to get back open 6 days a week as soon as possible. For the latest information on our opening hours, please see our Instagram page, or send us a message or email to check.

Our Menu

Celebration Cakes

We only accept orders via e-mail to rosie@siftotley.com or in person in the shop. When enquiring about a cake, please include the desired date and the size required, plus any information about allergens that may be pertinent. Please remember we are a very small team and slots for celebration cakes can book up quickly, so as much advance notice as possible is appreciated, and we often cannot accommodate very short notice orders.

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, or a custom design, please e-mail Rosie on rosie@siftotley.com to discuss your ideas.
