Modern Love’s Pineapple Coconut Cream Pie is featured on a new national top 10 list from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The confection — vegan, of course — is one of the group’s Top 10 Sweet Vegan Treats on a list aimed at Valentine’s Day diners. The Omaha restaurant, owned by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, is included on the list with cafes from cities including Philadelphia, Denver and Baltimore.
It has a graham cracker crust filled with coconut mousse, topped with pineapple, toasted coconut, coconut whip and a cherry.
“PETA’s top 10 list is a love letter to the eateries that whip up sweet treats without harming chickens, cows or any other animals,” national PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a press release.
Vegan foods are made with no saturated animal fat or cholesterol. Other desserts on the list include a mini cannoli, a turtle cake and a heart-shaped chocolate cake.
Modern Love is located at 3157 Farnam St. in Midtown Crossing.
