Best answer: Try Glitter at 47 O'Farrell St in Union Square. Yelp has photos.

Best answer: Optical Underground is great. Very cheap, and the frames are interesting.

Veo Optics has some bold frames. Corner of Church and Market Streets in the Castro. (Caveat: I've never bought from there.)

Eye Gotcha on Castro Street. Seriously. All my friends with the fancy, funky, fashion forward frames get them there.

(FYI, around here "SFO" only means the airport, not the city.)
