Katie Holmes Celebrates Daughter Suri Cruise's 10th Birthday in NYC Get All the Details!

By Karen Mizoguchi

Happy Birthday, Suri Cruise!

The 10-year-old celebrated her birthday a little early with mom Katie Holmes in New York City on Sunday.

"Suri enjoyed a low-key pre-birthday lunch Sunday with Katie, her maternal grandparents and two young girlfriends at Tavern on the Green," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Suri and her crew sat in the courtyard and ordered hamburgers, where an apparently famished Holmes impressed onlookers by cleaning her plate.

And when it came time for dessert, the daughter of Tom Cruise opted for the famed Central Park eatery's baked goods.

"Rather than cake and a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday,' Suri and her pals quietly opted for freshly-baked cookies from Tavern on the Go before heading off into sunny Central Park," the eyewitness shares with PEOPLE.

Holmes, 37, gushed about her little girl's birthday on Instagram Monday. "So grateful for my favorite day of the year!!!!!! Happy Birthday to my sweet angel Suri," the actress wrote.

In late March, the mother of one treated Suri to a VIP experience when the pair went to see School of Rock on Broadway.
