Looks like things are getting serious between Robert Pattinson and his new flame, London-based singer-songwriter FKA twigs.

“It just seems like she’s had a real positive impact on his life,” a source tells PEOPLE.

The one-time Twilight heartthrob was in Toronto on Sunday to shoot the Robert De Niro project Idol’s Eye, and he and his girlfriend made a day of it, heading to the hip Luna Café.

“They were holding hands and smiling, laughing,” the source says, describing the pair as “all lovey-dovey.”

While in the Canadian city, the two didn’t only share plenty of PDA.

“They were sharing some cookies” on their way to the restaurant, the source says.

Pattinson – who “seems much happier, much more open”– was first spotted with twigs in August, and a source told PEOPLE the pair are “really in love.”

So, just who is Pattinson’s new flame?

FKA twigs (née Tahlia Barnett) is a former pro dancer who once performed backup for such artists as Ed Sheeran and Jessie J. Now, the musician – who dropped her debut album LP1 in August – is about to blow up, stateside.

The part-Jamaican, part-Spanish artist, whose nickname “twigs” comes from the tendency of her muscle joints to crack during dance warm-ups, made her U.S. late-night debut on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Thursday, she’ll bring her nearly sold-out tour to Washington, D.C.

While both twigs and Pattinson are juggling full schedules, “they seemed really happy,” the source says.
