Wouldn't it also be correct to say 图书馆下面有咖啡馆 (minus the 的)? I got marked wrong

No problem at all. Report it.

According to my native Chinese speaking girlfriend it's fine.

Is no measure word needed before 咖啡馆?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keith_APP

Not necessary unless the number is specified. Although it is likely to be 1 café, more is also possible.

    Good question! Such as 一家?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mokuhazush

    You could add 一家 if you want, but it's not necessary

    Although you can say '有间咖啡馆', it's okay to not have it

    the pronunciation is so funny

    It's still being marked wrong without 的。的isnot required. Also "a coffee bar" indicates only one, so 一家咖啡馆 I think is correct.

    图书馆楼下有咖啡厅 is this right?

    I think it should be 图书馆下面有一团咖啡店
