When in Italy I love to eat brioches
, the typical bar breakfast. Where can I find these tasty sweets in America (Massachusetts or California)?

These are shaped like croissants, but I find that instead of being buttery and flakey like the croissants I am used to, these brioches are dense and sweet. In bars and cafes, they come filled with cream or marmalade. Supermarkets also sell them in packs of 8 or so without any filling. I was just in Italy and bought a few packs of Parigine brand "soffici brioches semplici" but they won't last me forever.
Are there any supermarkets, bakeries, or cafes in American (specifically in the Boston/South Shore/Metrowest area of Massachusetts and the Bay Area of California) that sell these? Or anyplace online where I can order Italian pastries?
