After lockdown we are all looking for places to go and after such a long time of doing nothing we need the best – and this coffee shop in Otley, West Yorkshire is the coolest coffee shop in town. You’ll feel like you’ve been taken to a whole new place when you sit down to enjoy a brew and a slice of cake. Sift, in Otley, is a coffee lover’s coffee dream.
Housed in a former bank, the Grade II listed building has a unique structure from the outside which it has enhanced with the shops bold aqua green splash of cover that makes the beautiful place look delightful before you’ve even stepped inside.
Instagram influences us more and more these days, from our holiday choices, what we wear and, of course, where we eat. Being visual beings and food lovers, we’re victims of this ourselves. And, this cafe in the town of Otley has their a dreamy look which is the perfect backdrop for a good ol’ cup of tea or coffe with a cake.
Sift has created a welcome space, with every detail thought out from their selection of locally sourced products to the simple yet stylish decor. You only need to go on their Instagram to be pulled into a world of beautifully made coffees and cakes that will have you licking your screens.
Instagrammable cafes have popped up all over Yorkshire with decor, dishes and drinks that are made for the ‘gram’. They do some great food with Yorkshire products, such as their grilled cheese sandwhich that is made with Yorkshire Chutney. Our personal favourite is their avocado on toast, which is served with feta, on sourdough with basil – it’d go great with a cheeky flat white coffe.
As well as stocking a range of coffees and loose tea drinks, Sift offers up celebration cakes as well, which you can order in-store or online via email@example.com. From what we’ve seen of their cakes on Insta, they look out of this world!
We can’t deny that we are loving this new trend – so, we’ve picked a selection of our favourite images from Sift’s Instagram and photos that you’ve been tagging this unique venue in. Coffee, anyone?
