Besides Barneys, there's also Jack Straw and Blue Owl Workshop.
I still need to check out their new Totokaelo MAN spot.
Owner at Jack Straw is wicked nice, as is Jay. Definitely worth stopping in at both of those, those Blue Owl isn't exactly convenient to get to from Downtown (and is still appointment only, IIRC). I visited Totokaelo last week, buys weren't great IMO, but the space itself is cool.
Food-wise, Serious Pie is a must visit, best pizza I've had since moving to Seattle. Tat's Deli and Grand Central Bakery in Pioneer Square are great. Delicatus and Hole-in-the-Wall BBQ (at 2nd and Jackson?, I think) are both good lunch spots as well. If you like Mexican, Tenoch up on 5th is apparently fairly authentic; went there once with coworkers and enjoyed it, but can't comment as to the legitimacy of that claim. I also enjoyed The Berliner for a quick kebab on occasion. Macrina is also a nice bakery, but IMO the First Ave location doesn't compare to the one in Queen Anne, which is out of the way. Le Panier down by Pike Place is possibly worth a visit if you can get there before all the tourists flood in, pastries were pretty good. A bunch of the downtown Starbucks have Clover machines; as a huge nerd I was excited to try one, YMMV.
I'm not really a local, so probably missing a bunch of places, but that's my 2¢.
