Sugar Hill Creamery
Recommended everywhere from Amsterdam News to the New York Times, this small artisan ice-cream shop is making a big impact. A cozy-sweet shop outfitted in pink, Sugar Hill Creamery is a family-oriented ice cream parlor shaking up the classic dessert shop experience. Expect spirit lifting artisanal flavors like blueberry cheesecake, coffee turmeric ginger, and honey lavender alongside classic flavors (and some great vegan and gluten-free options). Founders Nick and Petrushka Bazin Larsen are long-time Harlem residents dedicated to marrying food with community. Ice cream is handmade and small-batch, with seasonal flavors inspired by Harlem, as well as Petrushka and Nick’s Caribbean and Midwestern cultures. From flavors named for local icons (try the A$AP Rocky Road) to the fresh hip-hop tunes on the radio, this sweet stop is a delicious ode to the neighborhood.
