Just like Key:lunch and Key:breakfast, some amenities could use a tag to indicate that dinner can be served there (and at what times etc). Why can't I find such a thing (on the wiki / when tagging)? Thanks!

According to taginfo the key dinner has been used two times so far. Not all tags are documented on the wiki, especially tags which are rarely used. Feel free to use this tag with values similar to the breakfast and lunch tags.

Also feel free to update the wiki. In my opinion there is no reason to have different pages for breakfast, lunch and dinner tags because their semantics are very similar. I think they should get documented on a single wiki page.

So I'll integrate taginfo into my workflow. It seems that supper_hours has also been used once. If that's okay, I'll change that one to dinner also.

I once patronised a place which was a cafe at breakfast time and posh restaurant at dinner time. Dont know how one tags that.

Also even in British English dinner is somewhat ambiguous: many people round here use the term for a midday meal.
