Within the Schengen departures at Brussels Airport (BRU), there’s a Diamond Lounge that you can access with your Priority Pass Membership if you are not flying in the premium class cabin.
The Diamond Lounge is better than I expected regarding food and drinks. I visited during breakfast and was pleased with the hot and cold breakfast options and all-you-can-drink beverages.
The Diamond Lounge is located across from Gate A42 after security. You can take the escalator or elevator to reach the lounge entrance.
I could enter the Diamond Lounge for free with my Priority Pass Membership card.
It’s worth mentioning that it showed no lounges when I was looking for a lounge at Brussels (BRU) airport through the Priority Pass app. But I found that through the Amex Lounge Brussels Airport website instead and saw two (2) Diamond lounges there for non-Senchgen and Schengen departures.
You can access the Diamond Lounge at Brussels Airport (BRU) with the following fees:
42.50 euro if you pay at the lounge or $37.50 pay online.
It wasn’t too crowded when I visited the lounge in the morning.
The seats inside the Diamond Lounge are standard. There are quite a few of them spanning across the lounge. You also find dining tables and chairs by the buffet station.

The food inside Diamond Lounge is served buffet style. I was at the lounge in the morning, so they were serving breakfast.
The breakfast options are better than I expected for a Priority Pass lounge. They have hard-boiled eggs, ham, beans, mini pancakes, a salad bar, cold cuts, and lots of pastries, including Belgian waffles.

Drinks are also self-served, so you can enjoy as much as you want. They have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Plenty of options are available, from liquors to wines and draft beers!

The bathroom at Diamond Lounge is also nice and clean. I like that all the toilet stalls are fully enclosed for privacy.

The lounge offers no Wi-Fi, but you can connect to Brussels Airport Wi-Fi for free.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Diamond Lounge at Brussels (BRU) airport. Provided it’s a Priority Pass Membership participating lounge, I thought the food and drinks options would be limited, but that’s not true. I was there during breakfast time, and the breakfast hot and cold options exceeded my expectation. The lounge wasn’t busy, so enjoying the lounge and amenities an hour before my flight out of Brussels was nice.
