If it's a place only selling drinks, and all the drinks are prepared in
that same
style, then maybe.  If it sells food as well as drink then what does the
apply to?  If it sells Italian-style coffees and English-style teas, what
Anyway, cuisine applies to food rather than drink.  How about
So drink:style:coffee=italian.  Clunky and ugly (and possibly unnecessary)
it covers all possibilities.

So a place that does the thick and rich italian hot chocolate would be

Ummmmm, are we talking about cafes in Europe (coffee and maybe light snacks)
or in Britain (filling meals)?  I'm having problems fitting that
combination into a
British English definition of cafe.  Does not compute.  This is the sort of
found in many British cafes (often served all day long, despite the name):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_breakfast  If I wanted one of those and
was led
to a place selling nothing but chocolate, I'd be very disappointed.

I'm starting to agree with bkil here, to the extent that we need some way of
tagging what in British English is called a coffee house ot coffee shop.
The problem being that they can also serve light snacks and are on
the same spectrum as cafes (British meaning) it's just that the menu is
more limited.  Also places that start out selling coffee and cakes may
retain "coffee shop" or "tea shop" in the name but expand their menu until
they are effectively cafes.

See https://www.facebook.com/pg/adelescafeCilgerran/about/
It started as a tea room and coffee shop (and still describes itself
that way) selling "cakes and light bites."  It later added cooked
breakfasts and the title of that "About" page is "Adele's Cafe."  It
can't make up its mind what it is.
