building=kiosk is a small one-room building, usually made of non-masonry material (metal, wood, plastic, glass etc). It often used for selling small goods (shop=kiosk) or for some service provision (shoe repair, information, key cutting etc). Such buildings do not have inner room for clients, all interactions are made through the window on facade. Notice that this tag describes building type and not its use or assortment; use shop=* and craft=* in addition.
