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.


In Puerto Rico, your morning coffee would include a pastry called quesito — a puff pastry filled with cream cheese and sometimes guava. We were inspired by this and made a cream cheese ice cream with guava puree and flaky, buttery pastry folded in.


green New Deal

AOC represents the district across the river but the Green New Deal should inspire us all. So lets try a seasonal ice cream with some local fruits and vegetables. We thought spring peas and rhubarb would be unique flavor for the season.

A$Ap Rocky Road

Our milk chocolate ice cream is enhanced with toasted hazelnuts and homemade marshmallows. Our Harlem version of Rocky Road should be named for A$AP Mob’s most styling member.


Island Formation

Bey’s Lemonade is always on the playlist so why not create a lemon sherbet with a Caribbean twist. We steep sorrel flowers to form a fun, seasonal pink lemonade.

chairman of the board

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


POn De Replay (v)

It’s spring fun in the sun at Sugar Hill Creamery so we’ve added a non-dairy toasted coconut with passion fruit and tamarind is to the case. This bright and sweet tropical sorbet is a perfect pair to a Dancehall beat.


Unfinished Business

Cookie dough isn’t complete until it is baked in the oven but we just passed over this step and added our chocolate chop cookie dough to our vanilla ice cream.

Bee’s Knees 2.0

Spring is here so while the flowers bloom and the bees pollinate, please in enjoy our honey ice cream with lavender flowers.




Slice of Pie

For the winter season, we created a variation of a mud pie – coffee ice cream on a Oreo cookie crust that is topped with caramel, chocolate and homemade whipped cream.



A nod 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.


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


Build your own ice cream sandwich from our selection of cookies and brownies and your choice of ice cream from the dipping case.

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.
