Solstice |  “Smash Burger” and natural wine in Morin-Heights

While the solstice usually only occurs twice a year, Laurentians and tourists don’t have to wait long to treat themselves to a “smash burger” break and natural wine, an unusual combination in the region.


Open since September, Le Solstice plans to welcome gourmet dining year-round in its charming little complex adjacent to a gas station on Route 364 and very close to the Aerobic Corridor. Behind the hotplate or the cash register, depending, is Missy Tremblay, the owner, and her sisters, who followed her into this restaurant project, a first for her. After learning at various establishments, notably Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal, and working as a sommelier at a Michelin-starred restaurant in France, he chose the Laurentian as his home base. With Le Solstice, Missy offers gourmet cuisine, but simple and relaxed.
