Reese Witherspoon was looking for brunch on Saturday, but instead she treated herself to sweets.
In Atlanta filming Devil's Knot, the actress popped into Bistro Niko where she had dessert first, and then ate quiche Parisienne.
"She was very cute," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She had cookies, madelines and hazelnut brittle, which seemed to hit the spot."
The tasty times continued for Witherspoon, who brought husband Jim Toth and kids Ava and Deacon with her to the Atlanta Fish Market on Sunday, where a dining guest says she approached the hostess desk with a "Hey y'all!" greeting.

Reese Witherspoon went hiking with her father John in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday amid her parents' ongoing legal dispute over his second marriage.
The Oscar winner, 36, took her children Ava and Deacon along for what a witness says was a low-key, quiet walk together.
It has been a difficult time for the Witherspoon family, with Reese's mother Betty suing John in Tennessee, alleging that he married another woman while still married to her – though they've been separated since 1996. Betty alleged in an affidavit that John has problems with alcohol and may have early-onset dementia.

"Although the concept is somewhat foreign to them, they're starting to understand that this happens to families in our country and all throughout the world."

Even A-Listers can get star-struck.
Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon said she was so nervous about the prospect of meeting the Duchess of Cambridge at a fundraiser that she couldn't even decide what to wear.
"I must have tried on like six outfits," Witherspoon, 35, tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview to air Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe we can be friends."
Witherspoon's preparations for the event, which Prince William also attended, apparently prompted some teasing from the star's husband, Jim Toth.
"My husband just thought I was so dorky," said Witherspoon, whose new movie, This Means War, opens Friday.
