Slice into the menu with a cool, cold sandwich ($3.39–$13.79) such as the veggie sub, with your choice of three cheeses and avocado, the salami-turkey-provolone, or the ham-salami-capicolla-pepperoni-provolone. Load a gastronomic cargo carrier with a medium fountain drink ($1.39) or chips ($1), or turn on the mouth heat with a stomach-warming griller, such as the 12-inch New York steak ’n’ cheese on ciabatta ($4.99–$7.99) or the 8-inch barbecue pork ($4.99–$7.99). Any sandwich can also be made into a wrap ($4.99–$6.29).
Whether for a birthday party or a night away from the kitchen, YR Pizza Planet welcomes entire families with a kid- and adult-friendly menu of oven-baked Italian meals. Patrons can step up to the counter to order an individual pizza made specially for their tastes, or a 14” large to share with friends or enemies who hate pizza. Crusts come in crispy or pan varieties, and are adorned with more than a dozen toppings, such as sausage, onions, and pineapple. Aside from pizza, chefs pull toasted ham and cheese or steak fajita subs from the oven, with fresh-baked cookies following close behind. YR Pizza Planet also helps patrons hit their veggie quota with a bountiful salad bar.
The food aficionados at Reedley Sandwich Shop swaddle their best meats, veggies, and condiments with chewy, golden bread, then accompany the yeast-framed eats with warm soups and crisp salads. To activate creative juices without ingesting powdered tempera, patrons can build their own sandwiches, designing handheld hunger-busters using bold ingredients such as roast beef, salami, provolone, and pepper jack (4.25/half, $5.50/small, $7/large). For a bun-based snack loaded with protein, gobble up a chili dog ($4.50), or for a clam-based dessert loaded with chowder, savor spicy slurps from a sourdough bread bowl ($8.50). Sweeter meal finales include milkshakes and root-beer floats ($4.50).

The comfortable atmosphere is key, as staff at Mainstreet Cafe hopes its diners will come to eat all three meals and feed all four stomachs, with a menu that encompasses breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the mornings, the griddle sizzles with eggs and pancake batter. Later in the day, guests can order hearty sandwiches and Black Angus burgers, steak dishes, or the café’s specialty german sausage and housemade zwieback.

Like an apple pie smothered in chile verde sauce, the bill of fare brings Mexican and American cuisine together, with patty melts, fries, and grilled cheese sandwiches served alongside plates of huevos rancheros and bowls of menudo.
