had lunch – sans Brad Pitt
or their children – at Public at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Tuesday afternoon.
While the actress recently spoke about her "very grounded home,"
she "beamed" as she joined four women and one man at a corner booth near the bar for a mid-day meal.
The actress-turned-director looked "stunning in a long black fitted coat, a Louis Vuitton tote and her hair down," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked breathtaking with no makeup on."
As the group enjoyed a "carefree" lunch, Jolie was smiling and "seemed really comfortable and totally peaceful. Just having a nice lunch," the source adds.
