If you’ve ever had a hankering for Hungarian comfort cooking, come and dine at Bardon’s Smoked Paprika. Named after Hungary’s most popular spice, Chef Gabor Traub has carefully selected his family’s recipes to serve at his restaurant whilst adding his own creative touches.

Located at 65 MacGregor Terrace, Smoked Paprika is an all-day breakfast restaurant that serves home-cooked meals with distinct Hungarian influences.



Chef Traub changes the menu regularly to keep the choices interesting but the cafe’s signature meal, the Smoked Paprika breakfast, is a must-have for first-timers. This order has spiced beef with a rich layer of goulash served on Turkish bread, poached eggs, roasted tomatoes and grilled halloumi with hollandaise sauce.

“My new favourite Brisbane cafe! The service here was next level, the were staff always accommodating us at each stage of the dining experience.

I had one of the green smoothies to start. It was very natural, smooth & not overly sweet. I chose the Sweet Potato Hash for Breakfast. A crowd favourite 3/4 from our table selected it. How delicious, avo, goats fetta, sweet potato hash & a large serving of bacon definitely hit the spot.

Worth the wait in gold, but make sure you book ahead.”

“Innovative take on breakfast/brunch.
Was impressed by the use of ingredients such as kale etc.
Lovely beverages to go with the meals.
I must add that the staff were very patient as it was well past closing time and I was taking my sweet time doing justice to my dish.”
