British English usage is always slippery (because of marketers) but
I'd say that a cafe offers some sort of food somewhere to sit.  As in
meaning 1 of https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/caf%C3%A9

Sometimes we have tea shops (but they sell other beverages) and
coffee shops (but they sell other beverages) and those sell some
sort of food (cakes, or sandwiches, or fry-ups, or whatever).  They
get mapped as amenity=cafe. :)
