It doesn't look like being officially agreed has helped us much with cafe, so...

Do we want to introduce new tags for gastronomical service places? If
yes, so far takeaway has one of the clearer definitions I've seen, so
we could start there.

Nah. If it's a place that an editor would consider a takeaway, tag it
as takeaway. Otherwise tag it as something else. amenity=fast_food
could become a less-specific fallback, like highway=road.
