This West Yorkshire Town Coffee Shop Is An Instagram Paradise

Sift, in Otley, is a coffee lover’s coffee shop. Housed in a former bank, the Grade II listed building already has a unique look from the outside butSift has enhanced this even further with a bold aqua green exterior.

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.

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’.

As well as stocking a range of coffees and loose tea drinks, Sift offer up celebration cakes as well, which you can order in store or online via 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?
