I can identify a cukrászda through its window.

In Hungary in every restaurant before you pay the bill, the waiter asks if
you want some dessert. She asks you, even if they only have pancakes as
dessert. So one could tag every "amenity=restaurant" with
"cuisine=*;dessert". But the restaurants do not want you to sit in only for
a pancake, they want you to eat a whole course (food).
Cukrászdas want you to eat from their many sweets.
If Google is for finding specific places in the world, what is OSM for?

You would be surprised if you wanted to cure your hunger in a Hungarian
cafe. I do not expect (real, nutritious) food in a cafe.
