A concept that is not well understood in coastal areas of the United States or frankly anywhere next to an ocean. It is a manner of non-confrontationally addressing a situation that is somehow annoying in a passive-aggressive manner that is subtle enough to be considered friendly.

For example, if someone says "You're fine" it almost certainly means you're doing something to annoy them. "Let me sneak past you" means you're someone's way." "I can wait" means you need to hurry up. "You sure that's a good idea?" means it is not a good idea, and you look stupid.
I dropped some Midwest Nice on this guy from Maryland. He error coded 404 because he was unsure if I was being nice or just wanted him to make a damn decision already.

Get the Midwest Nice mug.
The type of niceness you see from a guy from the midwest areas in America such as Michigan or Wisconsin, who is considered the most laid-back dude ever. If he's someone with the midwest nice is owning the lawn and he sees your lawn is getting pretty shaggy, he's going to offer to mow your lawn. If you don't have enough money for Culvers, he'll gladly pay for the rest of his cheese curds and custard. If you're stepping on his foot, he'll say "Ope! excuse me sir/ma'am, I hope it's not to big of an ask but may you... um you're stepping on my foot, it kinda hurts, thank you!"
Charlie Berens is a youtube with the midwest nice.
"This guy, yeah, he offered to clean out my gutter for free, he must have that Midwest Nice or something."
