Any place one can buy Kouign Amann in SF?

Tom fell in love with kouign amann while on our home exchange in Brittany, I have been searching for a bakery in San Francisco that sells this. I tried using David Leibovitz's version which was too bread like and not the chewy, flaky pastry we remember from Brittany and will try Madeleine Kaman's recipe in When French Women Cook. However, I suspect I will not be able to bake this at home since I'm a terrible baker and would love to find someplace to buy kouign amann.
