San Mateo is home to Gator Games on Olympic at 42nd Ave, a block from El Camino. They have improved their stock of boardgames over the years and almost always have some sort of sales going on there.

San Mateo, CA 94403
650-571-7529
Store hours Tues-Fri 11-7, Sat/Sun 11-6 PST

If you have the time, Saturday is a Gamesday event at the Los Altos Library where many of the Silicon Valley Boardgamers meet.

Gamescape in San Francisco is great, and right next to a cafe that stashes tons of games you can play for free (I learned Agricola there!)
333 Divisadero St
San Francisco, CA 94117
(415) 621-4263

also
Just Awesome! The Board Game Store

816 Diamond Street
San Francisco, CA 94114
(415) 970-1484

a little more family-oriented but still fun.

I like "Just Awesome" because of the service and all of their games are playable in the back. They have a copy of every game in the back they sell so people can play them to see if they would like them.

I was up in SF this weekend and wandered in Gamescape, thanks to your advice. Great store, great selections. A bit pricey except for their games on sale. They currently have some good deals on Ilium and Toledo.

Thanks for both FLGS addresses, it's exactly what I was also looking for!

(GamestoreDB.com seems to be a bit outdated.)
