If you love board games enough to carry around your own 12-sided die, The Game Parlour is the spot to be. This place in the Inner Sunset is technically a cafe, and serves beer, wine, and surprisingly good milkshakes and waffles (we like the Chicken Coup, with soy-glazed fried chicken and slaw). It costs $5 to play any board game for an unlimited amount of time, which means people are slow to give up their tables. When you’re finally playing Stratego, though, the wait is all worth it.
