I don't recognise 'fast food' in any case ! Perhaps an image of a cheetah
or peregrine falcon would be more appropriate ? I'm not sure all 'fast
food' outlets produce food particularly quickly - but that's beside the
point. I suspect a cup of coffee symbol is pretty universal globally for a
café / coffee shop  - and OSM should be aiming for as globally acceptable
icons as possible.

I can just see then the icon globally agreed and a colour debate going on
into the next century !
