Nope. :)

As described in the proposal, most lack seating.  Which makes those
without seating shops rather than cafes.

Seems reasonable, if they have seats and they also serve food.

I can see that it's more like fast food since the stuff has to be prepared.
But then I think "Starbucks."  Have we already standardized on a way
of tagging somewhere without seats that sells takeaway coffee?

So like a place that sells takeaway coffee but the list of beverages
is different.  If we have a way of mapping coffee takeaways then
use that with drink:bubble_tea=yes.  If we don't have a way of mapping
coffee takeaways then we probably need one that can,deal with coffee,
bubble tea and whatever else with appropriate drink:*=*.
