Sugar Hill Creamery proudly serves a Nicaraguan and Guatemalan coffee blend with hints of chocolate and jasmin. The blend is roasted by Gotham Coffee Roasters at the Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. 


Many of Sugar Hill Creamery's flavors are seasonal and rotate on a daily basis. 

andy griffith

Nothing is more vanilla than Andy Griffith. The vanilla for this classic comes from the island, Ile Bourbon, from which the vanilla was originally sourced and not the bottle stashed directly underneath the counter (kidding of course). Ile Bourbon, now known as Reunion, lies directly off the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean.


sweet socialism (V)

The African island of Madagascar provides us with this single-estate dark chocolate. The result is a decadent, rich sorbet often mistaken for ice cream because of its creamy, milky texture.

'Caramel treat, Honey-gold baby, Sweet enough to eat.'

This poem by Langston Hughes is inspirtation for our golden-brown, salted caramel ice cream. We add butterscotch and homemade brownies for a bit of a crunch.

jazzy belle

We twist a classic brown butter pecan with a splash of bourbon. The ice cream in made with brown sugar to deepen the flavor and the pecans are toasted with sea salt, brown sugar and brown butter.

Our gingersnap cookie dough is comparable to a famous red-head from the past. We make the gingersnap with candied ginger, molasses and clove. It is the perfect fall holiday flavor.

Cousin eddie

Egg nog is a favorite holiday drink of the Griswald’s. So we made a frozen version with apple brandy, rum, bourbon and a hint of nutmeg. To appeal to Cousin Eddie, we thought to add some pretzels.


Tree Candy

Hanging off our family tree each year are candy canes for our kids to enjoy on Christmas Day. So let’s take fresh mint, dark chocolate bark and candy canes to make our favorite peppermint ice cream.

Blueberry cheesecake is rich and definitely the boss. Our signature cream cheese-based ice cream includes layers of with graham crackers and blueberry jam. This customer-favorite is now offered year around.


fair trade (v)

Not a 'horrible deal' as this Mexican drink makes its way into our display cabinet. Traditionally made with rice milk and cinnamon, we also add coconut milk to add a bit of fatty creaminess.


The Ultimate Re-Gift (v)

You won’t want to pass this frozen fruit cake treat off to your overbearing boss. We made an oat milk dessert with orange zest, ginger, roasted mixed nuts and dried fruits to keep for yourself.




Slice of Pie

For the holiday season, enjoy our bourbon ice cream with honey roasted pecans or our sweet potato ice cream with toasted marshmallow. We serve the pies in a graham cracker crust.



Nodding to Thomforde’s, Harlem’s last soda fountain located on St. Nicholas Ave and 125th Street, Sugar Hill Creamery’s malt shake offers a nostalgic reprieve for older Harlem residents and an introduction to good ole’ fashion fare for younger ones.

brownie sundae

We compose a layered sundae of vanilla ice cream topped with homemade brownies, chocolate and caramel sauce, and whipped cream. Then, we repeat.


You choice of ice cream goes great with our Virgil's sodas (Black Cherry, Orange, Root Beer) and Reed's Ginger Beer).

Cookies and brownies

We serve a selection of assorted cookies and brownies made by Harlem bakeries and beyond.



We are proud to serve a selection of croissants, scones and danishes from Balthazar Bakery.
