My wife and I found Solstice Wood Fire Cafe on Yelp on our drive out from Portland on a Friday evening and were seated in the outdoor enclosed patio without having to wait for a table.

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this place! What a gem! Great pizza, staff and beer. It was perfect after a long day in the car and at the Oregon Zoo. We were hungry and tired and the kids and us loved the Pizza. Our server was great and when we asked what he likes he told us the BLBB... More

The owner seated us - he & the rest of the staff were super friendly. Our kids had the pizza and we had Moroccan stew & Quinoa curry- both were very flavorful and filling. Strongly recommend Solstice!

These guys create great pizza. But the real secret are the daily specials. The chef loves to create dishes with local ingredients and it shows. The ambience is super kid friendly with a play area to one side. Outdoor seating rocks !!! Gets crowded as its really popular .. So go early , play a cross the street then enjoy

Though a bit on the expensive side the pizza here is first class. My daughter and I saw the cherry/chorizo/goat cheese pizza and just had to try it. Wonderful! Only downside was that they did not have seating on the front porch, which would enhance the experience.

I realize people get crazy about pizza and I won't get into an argument about what regional style is best or what should and should not be on one. I will say that the wood fired Country Girl Cherry pizza at Solstice is, without a doubt, my favorite pizza I have ever had. Cherry, Chorizo and Goat Cheese on a... More

I live 20 minutes away, in The Dalles. I go to a famous and fabulous Endonist that works next door. I was fascinated by the restaurant. I've been to my Endonist twice and I've been to Solstice twice. I can't eat the darned pizza until 3 hours after my procedure. But it's heaven. The muskiness of the crust, the dynamics... More
