Sift serve breakfast and lunch during the week and a brunch menu at weekends, with plenty vegan and gluten free options. I chose Sift as a half way stop for lunch, whilst travelling to Lincolnshire, so contacted owner Rosie to ask about soya free options, which she confirmed was no problem at all.
Sift is only a small space, but very cosy and I loved the bright, modern decor and welcoming feel to the place, so we found ourselves a table.
I chose soup of the day, which was courgette and mint, with homemade beans on toast for Steven, alongwith two Darkwood decaf Americano coffees.
The soup was delicious, creamy well seasoned and I loved the Bondgate Bakery bread served with it, whilst Steven loved his beans on toast, with a good variety of beans in a tasty tomato sauce.
I must mention Darkwoods coffee, decaf coffee can be pretty appalling and varies dependent on where you go, but Darkwoods is one of the best I have tried.
Rosie made cherry and coconut soya free cakes especially for my visit, hows that for customer service, so how could I resist, after she went to so much trouble. The sponge was light, moist, with marinated cherries hidden inside, a perfect finish to a lovely lunch.
I think Sift is a great place and others must think so too, as a constant stream of customers came and went, some to eat in and many for takeaway, worth a visit if you are ever in Otley.
