Cafes inside bookshops
It's quite common for large bookshops to have a little cafe inside. The best way to map these details, is to represent the large bookshop as a area around the building/shop perimeter and then place the cafe within this as a separate node . If you prefer not to add the bookshop outline, just place a node at the approximate centrepoint, but map the cafe as a separate node .
