It was already a big discussion about "sweet" entries almost year ago:


It was triggered by my try to display it on osm-carto (which was 
eventually established):


There was no conclusive outcome from this thread however, IIRC. I 
remember that it got more complicated when somebody mentioned French 
"pâtisserie" and just a few days ago I have found shop=bakery/pastry + 
amenity=caffe object, which I could not easily tag, because all the 
functions are equally valid for me. We were not able to even define 
confectionery/sweets/pastry because there are many local sweets shop 
types in different parts of the world.
