In superconductivity, Meissner effect describes the expulsion of magnetic field.

Could this be described as a breaking of the electromagnetic force in the way that the higgs field breaks electro-weak force?

Yes. In a superconductor the photon gains a mass due to this effect, similar to the Higgs effect in the electroweak case.
