Something similar to MySQL Workbench will do. Put separate suggestions in separate answers.

DB Browser for SQLite is a light GUI editor for SQLite databases, built on top of Qt. The main goal of the project is to allow non-technical users to create, modify and edit SQLite databases using a set of wizards and a spreadsheet-like interface.
It's a far cry from the other graphical tools mentioned here, but I've found that I prefer interacting with my SQLite databases with the built-in command line tool, sqlite3:
$ sqlite3 test.db SQLite version 3.6.12 Enter ".help" for instructions Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";" sqlite> create table test (a, b); sqlite> insert into test values (2, 3); sqlite> insert into test values (4, 3); sqlite> insert into test values (4, 5); sqlite> select * from test where a<b; 2|3 4|5 sqlite> .schema CREATE TABLE test (a, b);
The best part is that it's built into Mac OS X and is completely, 100% free. (No seriously, the code is in the public domain)
Some of the neat features it includes are:
There is a full schema designer. SQLPro for SQLite allows you to add/update/delete:
There is a seven day trial available via the website. If you purchase via our webstore, use the promo code STACK25 to save 25%.

Not native OS X app, but it will do the work!
There are also the Navicat brand of SQL editors, including Navicat for SQLite, which are available in the Mac App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/navicat-for-sqlite/id424161923?mt=12).
I've not used their SQLite tool, but have used their MySQL product, and found it to work well for most tasks.
Native OSX app for interacting with SQLite databases. Base isn't free, but I've found it to be useful. You can buy it through the Mac App Store.

Navicat for SQLite is a powerful Database administration and development tool for SQLite. It works with SQLite version 2 and 3 and supports most of the SQLite features including Trigger, Index, View, and so on.
It's a good product but IMHO expensive.
SQLiteFlow is a very great GUI tool for SQLite on macOS. It's intuitive, stable and reliable.
It has features that most SQLite editors or managers that suppose to have. Including:
A query editor which support code auto completion, syntax highlighting, format query, copy query to almost any language's quoted string after some configuration.
An alter table GUI tool which can help you maintenance your database structure without any pain to write alter table query, instead it can generate the query for you after you tell SQLiteFlow in UI that what need to be changed.
Attach opened databases directly through UI is a useful feature if you deal with attaching database thing in your daily work, very convenient, save your time from writing ATTACH DATABASE commands.
Handle database file name or directory changes automatically. This is a feature that once you found it exists, you can't leave it!
For me, as a iOS developer, SQLiteFlow help me deal with SQLite database in iOS simulator seamlessly without need to handle the fact that a same file (SQLite database) 's path in iOS simulator is changeable.
