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.

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.

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.

The Kid MEro

Habichuelas con Dulce is a Dominican dessert typically eaten during Lent, and is named for one of our favorite Bronx-born late night comedians. It is made from red beans, sweet potato, coconut milk and cloves. We fold in the pudding into our vanilla ice cream and add Goya Maria cookies and raisins.


Mo Bamba

Like a pro, out mint ice cream is wavy when we add Oreos to make a cookies and cream variation. We were thinking of Harlem’s own Sheck Wes’ ode to Mo Bamba when naming this thin mint flavor.

A$Ap Rocky Road

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


Big Red

We love cinnamon ice cream but we thought it needed a bit of spice. We make a honeycomb candy with Mike’s Hot Honey and fold it in for a sweet spicy treat.

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.


Tropical Sensation (v)

Back for another tour in the sun at Sugar Hill Creamery, our non-dairy Soursop frozen treat is featured in the case. Soursop is a distinct tropical fruit with notes of lychee, strawberry and pear.


The Unicorn

This birthday cake ice cream has a color palette to make any child dream of unicorns. We add homemade vanilla cake, royal frosting, and rainbow sprinkles to our vanilla base to inspire a cake and ice cream dream.




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).

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.
