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.
