+1, and how many will sell you homemade icecream? I guess it's less
then 2%. There are significant cultural differences here. Around here
a bakery might also sell you some sweet stuff (but you got a higher
chance to be sold pizza slices), but a normal pastry will never offer
bread or bread rolls (otherwise it would be a bakery). Tagging
something "bakery" where no bread is made or sold seems wrong to me.

Have a look at these two representative pictures to see the difference:
