Depending on add-ons installed following layouts can be set: Standard - regular meals list layout, Promo (FWFM Promo add-on) - layout that shows promo meals only, Cascading grid (FWFM Cascading Grid add-on) - tab like layout that allows to show categories with their own designs in one page, Order Online (FWFM Order Online add-on) - layout with search bar, category list and order total form to make an order online.
FWFM Category List

There is a Hide hidden titles parameter that helps to keep Category list clean from non-visible categories.
