An Ice cream shop or ice cream parlour. A place that sells ice cream and/or frozen yoghurt over the counter.

Ice cream may be sold in two varieties in these stores: soft-serve ice cream (normally with just chocolate, vanilla, and "twist", a mix of the two), and hard-packed, which has an assortment of flavours, as well as frozen yoghurt, which is a low-fat alternative and tastes slightly different from ice cream. Ice cream and frozen yoghurt are sold in ice cream cones, sundaes, and milkshakes. Some parlours may also sell gelato, ice cream cakes, and ice cream bars at these places. In addition to ice cream and frozen yoghurt, ice cream parlours may even sell a variety of hot foods.

How to map

Set a node at the center of the feature or draw an area along its outline. Tag it with amenity=ice_cream and name=*.

Current state of affairs

There is disagreement on whether amenity=ice_cream should be used or whether shop=ice_cream should be used. The meaning of both tags are exactly the same.
