Located in South London’s Kennington, The Oval Lounge, a laid back bar-café, adds greatly to the local community vibe in the area. With its pavement dining space and sleek white painted exterior, The Oval Lounge promises a chilled out atmosphere and friendly visit, the main dining room/bar area providing that same cosmopolitan feel with its combination of roughly scrubbed wooden tables and chairs and simple off-white paint job, fairy lights casting a twinkling glow during the evening and bright light flooding in in the day. Open until midnight from Thursday through Saturday, The Oval Lounge is the perfect place for those languid evenings with friends, providing a vast array of drinks; wine, beers both draught and bottles, cocktails and even fine champagnes, as well as great food for all occasions. Breakfast is available at The Oval Lounge as well as lunch and dinner.

The Oval Lounge is right across the street from my old flat (alas I have just moved) but it was a frequent spot for me to get a full english breakfast following a heavy night.
The atmosphere is really relaxed and you do get nice morning sun in the windows at the front, if you can get a table there. The full english will get you a sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs (no choice for fried), beans,...more
There was really no reason for me to go to a cafe at Oval (which is pretty much in the middle of nowhere for me) on a Saturday morning for brunch. But a friend insisted, and so I went along.
The restaurant wasn't bad. It's a short 2 minute walk from the station. The dining area is big and they also have a small patio with limited seating (which was still closed at after 1pm when we reached)....more
Chilled out atmosphere with fabulous decor. Smells of fresh coffee when you enter and feels cosy. Great for a snug winter drink but feels like summer has arrived by sitting outside and watching the world go by.more
