Miley Cyrus appears to have her best friend back. Three weeks after Liam Hemsworth's rep confirmed that they'd called it quits after a year of togetherness, the pair looks to be giving their puppy love another try.

On Saturday, the toothy starlet, 17, and the Aussie actor, 20, were tracked from her Toluca Lake, Calif., estate to Studio City, where they were photographed grabbing take-out at a local eatery and coffee at a Starbucks drive-through (Miley was behind the wheel of a Mercedes SUV).

"They're working things out," a source tells Gossip Cop, with another insider reiterating their rekindled flame status to Us.

Cyrus just returned from filming "LOL: Laughing Out Loud" in Paris and was apparently feeling down in the dumps without Liam, whom she began dating in the summer of 2009 on the set of "The Last Song."

"Since Miley returned to L.A. from Europe earlier in the week, she has acted a bit tired and worn out," a spy explains to People magazine. "With Liam back in her life on Saturday, she acted totally different and, instead, seemed very happy. It looked like Miley and Liam had never been apart, and they were back into their old routine."

Continues the oh-so-observant snitch, "Miley and Liam kept smiling and seemed to really enjoy their afternoon together. They acted like they had missed each other, kept chatting and seemed to be catching up. They definitely seemed like a couple again."

In March, Cyrus gushed that Hemsworth had "become my best friend in the whole wide world. I love him."

Perhaps because they have so much in common, including a profundity not typical in most twosomes still not old enough to drink.

"I think we're both deeper than normal people," she told Teen Vogue, "what they think and how they feel."

Just a few days ago, insiders denied reports linking Miley to her "LOL" co-star Douglas Booth. But she still had love on her mind -- and other places -- when she jetted back to Los Angeles from the City of Light.

She was snapped with a seemingly new tattoo on her pinkie: an outline of a heart.
