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?

Why is this an amenity? This is clearly a shop! --Pbb (talk) 21:29, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

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)
This seems much closer to a restaurant or a cafe than your typical shops. --AndiG88 (talk) 12:52, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
only if cafe and restaurant are reclassified as shops too. - pmailkeey 2015:5:14

Comment from main page

EITHER amenity=fast_food, amenity=cafe, amenity=ice_cream

OR shop=fast_food, shop=cafe, shop=ice_cream

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.)

However, according to TagInfo, cuisine=ice_cream is pretty much widespread, up to 12K occurrences. So documenting it would be warranted. -Bkil (talk) 10:55, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

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]), so amenity=ice_cream is several times more common. --Jeisenbe (talk) 20:57, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
