Do you need a little Christmas? Right this very minute? Try Grubstake, an urban diner that’s decorated to the hilt for the holidays. They make their own pumpkin pie. What a charm! They call it “house-made” and for $4.25 the pie is pretty damn good.

Santas galore.

Santas galore.

Grubstake must be the cutest diner West of New Jersey, especially at Christmas time. So many lights! So many Santas! While I didn’t actually count them, I’m guessing they’ve got at least 20 different *dancing* Santas at this Portuguese diner. Last year at Christmas was my first time at Grubstake. Now it’s going to become one of my Christmas traditions!

Now there's a sincere-looking home-made pumpkin pie!

Portuguese diner? Yes! The menu features both traditional American diner food like omelettes and burgers, as well as a “Portuguese Corner” on their menu with dishes like Bacalhau à Gomes de Sà which is codfish. Santos, the owner, will take excellent care of you. When you see him, tell him that I Love Pumpkins says hello!

  1. Hallo Thank you for the detailed article on delicious housemade pumpkin pie. I will take it with me to sleep and dream of delicious housemade pumpkin pies! I have been unable to visit due to my Juanita’s cursed sister Bianca. Now Bianca has brought her mewling brood of children to our cottage until the Lord’s Christmas. Even now I have no moments of solace in our home. Bianca’s accursed daughter Roxana has taken it upon herself to spy upon me at all times. I may not even have a movement in peace without Roxana reporting it to her mother. All the whiles the two brothers Matias and slow Chuy terrorize local small animals and make every attempt to destory our dear pumpkin patch. Slow Chuy is simple but Matias is wicked and leads his brother astray. That boy is truly a son of Cain. Slow Chuy cannot be left alone and just two days past his brother Matias locked him in the cupboard. When I discovered slow Chuy he had swallowed two buttons from the sleeve of his pea coat. Bianca and dearest Juanita both blamed me when it was Matias who locked slow Chuy in the cupboard. Oh I wish to be rid of wretched Bianca and I count the days until the Lord’s Christmas. Bless you Please write more articles about delicious confections!
