Gemstone Virtual Tip Jar

At Gemstone Cafe Group, our team is family. Their dedication and contributions to our restaurants - Citrine, Amber, Topaz and Papa Cenar - and to our community can’t be measured. 

We never could’ve imagined being in the position we now find ourselves, unable to sustain these loyal individuals who bring their all, every day, to our dining rooms and kitchens.

Many of you have asked how you can help. For that alone, we are grateful. We have launched this campaign in hopes of providing our restaurant family some financial relief. All funds raised will go directly to these employees. 

We truly appreciate the outpouring of love and support during this time and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we’re able.

With gratitude -
Branko Palikuca and the Gemstone Cafe Group family
