Explanation: I work at an institution that employs over 10,000 employees. Each office suite has its own little room with a water cooler, a refrigerator, a microwave oven, and an all-purpose table. In our department, we also keep the copier, shredder, and supply cabinet there.
We mostly refer to these little rooms as break rooms or coffee rooms. In our department, we even call it "the kitchen." I would not be surprised if other expressions were also used.
I think "break room" and "office lounge" are the most widely used expressions.
