About Us

Opened in November 2007, Rhythm Café came to be through the combined passions and efforts of three sisters originally from Haverhill, Sharon Wimmer, Cathy (Wimmer) Chouinard and Leslie (Wimmer) Fowler. Introduced to dining and mentored in the business of restaurants by their late father Paul Wimmer, the three sisters have spent most of their adult lives working in various roles in restaurants on both the east and west coasts. Each woman possesses a love of great dining, knowledge of food and food service and the desire to combine terrific food and wine in a comfy, cool and fun atmosphere. Individual strengths, such as Sharon’s wine expertise, Cathy’s delicious baked goods and Leslie’s culinary talents made opening a place of their own a natural choice. Naming the endeavor “Rhythm Café” was a way to honor their father Paul, whose last restaurant in San Luis Obispo, CA was called The Rhythm Creekside Café. Family ties are strong and deep for the Wimmers. Mother Maureen is Rhythm’s favorite customer.
