home made or industrial?
I suggest to use subtagging to differentiate between home made ice cream and industrial one. This could be done with the ice_cream-tag: ice_cream=industrial, ice_cream=artisanal and could be used for amenity=cafe as well as for other ways of tagging ice cream parlors. -- Dieterdreist 15:15, 1 September 2010 (BST)
Amenity or shop?
- Yeah nowadays it would definitely be added under the shop key. Just legacy reasons. I think it's a very old tag (documented in Map Features a lot longer than the age of this page... since the early days I think) -- Harry Wood (talk) 14:34, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

But not a mixture PLEASE - for consistency's sake.
Regarding your deletion of cuisine=ice_cream + amenity=...
Jeisenbe, I don't agree with your deletion in your edit where you give the following reasoning.
Remove "An alternative approach for tagging the same thing would be to tag it with cuisine=ice_cream, together with amenity=fast_food or amenity=cafe. " - this is not common.)
- Certainly cuisine=ice_cream should be documented at Tag:cuisine=ice_cream and I would recommend creating that page: it is already mentioned on Key:cuisine. However that tag has been used over 3000 times with amenity=ice_cream, as well as with amenity=cafe and amenity=fast_food ([taginfo https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=cuisine%3Dice_cream]), so amenity=ice_cream is several times more common. --Jeisenbe (talk) 20:57, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
