The storefront was reportedly smashed, with fake blood and graffiti reading "meat is murder" painted over the small business.
"If people have a message to make, make it peacefully by all means," Bobberman told 7 News.
"But this affects someone's livelihood."
Bobberman expects the mess to take hours to clean up, costing him money and working hours.
A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the vandalism after he was allegedly caught by police riding his bike without a helmet 30 minutes later.
Authorities allege the man was carrying a hammer, a can of spray paint and a bottle of red liquid.
7 News reports the man has been issued a notice to appear in Brisbane Magistrate's Court on suspicion of willful damage.
